Titleist Performance Institute Golf Screens. This is a out-of-pocket based service that includes a 16 point movement screen, manual therapy work addressing the physical limitations found and video analysis correlating results with your swing in addition to a 5 week home exercise program via the TPI PRO App.

About TPI:
TPI does not believe in one way to swing a club, rather in an infinite number of swing styles. But, we do believe there is one efficient way for every player to swing and it is based on what the player can physically do.

The most efficient swing is not the same for every golfer, because efficiency is unique to their body. To achieve an efficient swing, a golfer must first be screened. This screen involves an assessment of swing mechanics and biomechanics, physical fitness, movement quality, current health and a client history.

Once this screen is finished, the results are used to create a plan unique for that golfer. The plan may include fitness training, chiropractic/PT and treatment, coaching of swing mechanics and biomechanics, nutrition, mental strategy or all of the above.

A golfer will see the greatest improvement by surrounding themselves with a team of experts. Similarly, any professional in the golf industry will see their clients benefit most by themselves being part of a network or team of professionals.

Dr. Malik Mahmud has been a competitive runner for over fifteen years and ran Track & Field and Cross Country for Butler University primarily focusing on middle-distance events. At Butler, he studied Psychology and Mandarin Chinese, a combination that would later contribute to his interest in East Asian Medicine and Philosophy. Post-collegiately he has continued to train towards his goals in the sport and maintain a healthy lifestyle of which exercise has been a major component. Running has been an outlet for Dr. Mahmud and has taught him many life lessons on hard work and dedication to his craft.

During his running career, Dr. Mahmud dealt with injuries and setbacks thus having to explore many different approaches to healing. Through this journey, he found Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine and it completely changed the way he approached running, injuries, and recovery. The holistic approach of East Asian Medicine provided him with a new perspective on athletics in general and motivated him to eventually focus his Doctorate work on the sport of Running and the use of East Asian Medicine to improve one’s running. Not only has this medicine provided extremely effective and practical ways to improve recovery and healing, but the philosophy around the medicine has brought Dr. Mahmud a deeper appreciation and reverence for the sport. Outside of running, Dr. Mahmud enjoys roller skating, disc golf, spending time with friends, learning new languages and exploring new places in nature.

In addition to treating pain associated with active musculoskeletal and sports-related injuries, Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine are wonderful ways to support one’s overall health picture inclduing digestion, sleep, headaches and mood (to name a few) with an overarching goal of bringing patients back to a place of balance and comfort in their bodies.

In addition to the study of Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine during Dr. Mahmud’s training in East Asian Medicine, he studied the practice of Shiatsu massage, a Japanese-based form of bodywork. This is a form of bodywork similar to acupressure in which the acupoints are stimulated with the hands, thumbs, and other parts of the body. As a runner, combining Acupuncture with massage has been an extremely effective method for Dr. Mahmud in his recovery and healing process from past injuries. With strong influence from his mentor, both a Shiatsu practitioner and Acupuncturist, Dr. Mahmud has developed a style of treatment involving massage and Acupuncture which have proven to work wonders in concert with each other. This treatment option can be found as Shiatsu Massage & Acupuncture in our scheduling system.

Dr. Mahmud earned his Doctorate degree in Acupuncture with a Specialization in Chinese Herbal Medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM). He is licensed by the Massachusetts Board of Medicine and is a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

**Please Note: If you are a New Patient seeking an Initial appointment with Dr. Ian Nurse, he is currently only accepting New Patients at our Concord office. Once you have had your Initial appointment in Concord, you may see him at the Downtown or Brookline locations for follow-up appointments.

Dr. Ian Nurse founded Wellness in Motion Boston with a strong background in the conservative care of soft tissue (muscle, tendon, ligament, fascia and nerve) injuries. He has successfully treated a range of patients – Olympic level runners; professional and recreational athletes; A-list movie stars; musicians; individuals dealing with work-related injuries; grandparents seeking more active/pain-free lives with their families.

As a marathon runner for the past twenty plus years, Dr. Nurse has endured many overuse injuries of his own. Unwilling to accept the typical response: “If it hurts when you run, you should stop;” that he received when seeking relief from his various injuries, Dr. Nurse turned to chiropractic and Active Release Techniques (A.R.T.). Not only did his training and racing improve, but he also found his calling. Dr. Nurse thrives to help those whose lives and hobbies are limited by pain and discomfort.

Focusing on the critical relationship between human locomotion and the soft tissues that drive movement, Dr. Nurse addresses an injury by finding the root of the problem and not just treating the symptoms. As every injury has its own chronology and pattern, Dr. Nurse utilizes a patient’s history, as well as a thorough biomechanical and soft tissue assessment to formulate an appropriate treatment plan. While each injury’s treatment requires its own strategy, overall outcome goals are similar:

· Restore proper biomechanics and soft tissue function;

· Improve general range of motion of the involved joint;

· Increase power and strength of the involved tissues;

· Decrease frequency, duration and intensity of symptoms;

· Reduce the chance of re-occurrence.

Dr. Nurse is a fully certified Active Release Techniques provider with experience focused on the spine, lower extremity and upper extremity. He is also a certified provider of Graston Technique. Like A.R.T., Graston Technique safely and conservatively treats scar tissue and fascial adhesions through detection and effective break down of scar tissue fibrosis and chronic inflammation.

An avid athlete, Dr. Nurse has run in hundreds of road races all over the world. He continues to train competitively in hopes of improving on his personal best marathon time of 2:25 (Boston ‘13 and ‘14). This commitment to training has given him a unique understanding of the mental and physical demands of endurance training. Aside from running, he enjoys photography (actually most of the photos on this web site are his), reading, cycling, hiking, soccer, lacrosse and experiencing the outdoors.

Dr. Nurse is currently the team chiropractor for the New Balance Boston professional running team. He graduated Cum Laude at both Western States Chiropractic College of Portland, Oregon and Colby College of Waterville, Maine.

Gerald Samson: I am a dedicated part-time yoga teacher and experienced massage therapist. I taught full time for five years at Coolidge Yoga before deciding to put my full effort into massage therapy and treating sports injuries. I developed my massage practice at coolidge and out of my home in Boston. I graduated from Hobart and William Smith Colleges in 2011 with a B.A in both in Psychology and Philosophy, and rowed as a student athlete.

I found the practice of yoga after graduating college and it happened to be beneficial for reducing my work stress and the tightness my body had developed from rowing. Wanting to share yoga’s benefits I enrolled in a 200-hour teacher-training program with Ame Wren and the Boston Yoga School in 2014. Through yoga I began to see the body as a puzzle to unravel, which led to a strong interest in bodywork. This led to my enrolled at The Massage School in Boston in 2015.

With the influence of yoga in my bodywork, I work deep into the structure of the body, both to adjust structure and treat injuries that restrict mobility. In school I became skilled in a number of techniques like deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release and some elements of eastern bodywork (Shiatsu, Thai massage) and blend all of them into my work. I graduated from The Massage School in February of 2017 with over 200 hours of clinical practice, and have been working as a LMT since graduation.
