FitGolf Performance Centers of Long Island finishing research study

LONG ISLAND, N.Y. -- FitGolf Performance Centers of Long Island is near completion of the 2012 Golf Fitness Research Project. This year, like all the FitGolf Centers across the country, the Long Island FitGolf Center focused on the physical causes of back pain in relation to excessive body bend in golf. They are very close to reaching the goal of 1,000 participants from their surrounding area of Long Island.

"Across all the centers, the overall hypothesis for the National Study is that golfers with excessive pelvic and upper side bend, bend and rotation will experience lower back pain during practice and play," says Christina Panetta, Golf Fitness Specialist and Program Director of FitGolf Performance Centers in Long Island. "We are seeing this with the participants that have come in."

The research is being done at the FitGolf Performance centers in Long Island. There are three locations in the area. You can find the centers at:

Bayshore Center: 225 Howells Road, Bayshore, NY11706
Rosyln Center: 55 Bryant Avenue, 2nd Floor, Roslyn, NY 11576
Great Neck Center: 833 Northern Boulevard, Great Neck, NY 11021
