AGAPE PHYSICAL THERAPY – CHILI
Dr. Daniel Strack PhD Physical Thearpy is originally from Horseheads, NY. Post high school he earned his Bachelors Degree and was a 4 year collegiate golfer at Nazareth College in Rochester, NY. He is currently a leader in the field of kinematics and anatomical principles both in private practice and also as it relates to golf. “Dr. Dan” is TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) Level 1 Certified and understands that there is no one way to move the golf club ( each golfer has unique physical characteristics) rather, how we move our bodies is critical to success. If we move effectively, we will create an efficient swing pattern and prevent injury. If we move ineffectively we are more open to injury and lack of function. Dr. Dan is available to perform individual physical screenings and also create programming to produce “your best way” to function in the game of golf to avoid injury and increase enjoyment and longevity.
