Experienced physio Lindsay Smart gives Paul

Lawrie Golf Centre a new dimension
The Paul Lawrie Golf Centre at Banchory Devenick on the south side of the River Dee, Aberdeem  is now offering another service to ‘take your game to the next level’, writes Colin Farquharson
The centre already offers expert PGA advice on the latest golf equipment and gear, tuition from Andrew Locke, Billy Fyfe and Alan Stuart, a nine-hole par-3 course, an excellent short-game practice area ... and let's not forget the Clarets Coffee Shop/Restaurant for a hot cuppa and a wide range of cakes, scones, etc
Now you can go to the centre for physiotherapy. 
The Greenside Health and Performance Practice has been set up on site at the golf centre by specialist Musculo-Skeletal Physiotherapist, Lindsay Smart, pictured.
A keen golfer from an early age, Lindsay has had a two-handicap for some 20 years and his new venture will specialise in golf specific injuries and physical screening.
"A physical screening and intervention can help you achieve your golfing goals by reducing pain, allowing you to play and practise more often.   It can also improve your swing mechanics, improving distance and consistency," said Smart
Paul Lawrie is delighted to have Lindsay on board.

“We want the Golf Centre to be the best of its kind and the addition of a physiotherapist of Lindsay’s experience and skill allows us to provide an even more comprehensive service for golfers looking to improve their game and well-being," said the 1999 Open champion.
"I’ve been working with Lindsay for the past while now and the physio and fitness we do is really benefitting me.

Since he graduated from Aberdeen University and then Robert Gordon University in 2003, Lindsay has gained a wealth of experience working at Glasgow Royal Infirmary, Monklands District General Hospital, Arbroath Infirmary and Stracathro Hospital.  He has also worked for the Scottish Golf Union, Scottish Rugby Union and the Scottish Football Association and several football clubs, including Rangers, Dumbarton and Queen's Park.  Lindsay joins the team at the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre after completing nearly six years working within the Aberdeen Physiotherapy Clinic.
Greenside Health and Performance Aberdeen offer a professional physiotherapy service for expert assessment, treatment and advice. Lindsay also hopes to help if you are suffering pain or injury from leisure time activities, sports, employment or your everyday life.
