A term used in the world of human performance and golf performance is Neuromuscular Reeducation. As it applies to golf, it refers to the concept that your brain and nervous system has developed circuits or neural networks aligned with your habitual golf biomechanics and habitual golf movement patterns. Neuromuscular reeducation comes into play when golfers are looking to change aspects of their golf swing mechanics in order to improve drive distance and other aspects of golf performance.
This topic points to why it’s important to get great golf coaching as a beginner. By doing this you won’t be installing faulty golf biomechanics or swing mechanics which are reinforced by the laying down of myelin which I wrote about in a previous post. Myelin will reinforce whatever golf swing mechanics you practice, good or bad.
Neuromuscular reeducation comes into play when a golfer is attempting to, in essence, erase the golf swing mechanics that exists on there golf biomechanics human hard drive and install new golf biomechanics software in order to improve golf performance.
If you are in a situation where you’ve come to the conclusion or realization that your golf execution and golf swing mechanics are faulty and your golf performance is less than stellar, you can change it. What will be required are new practice habits performed with awareness. Over time these circuits will also become myelinated and begin to run unconsciously, just as the old ones did.
