Kjersten Marlow is a great instructor. Her knowledge of how to use your body in a golf swing is amazing. I would highly recommend Kjersten to anyone who wants to improve at golf.
Kjersten Marlow has really helped to improve my pain level, mobility and range of motion. My neck and back were almost locked up when I started the therapy sessions almost a year ago. It took most of what I had to perform my job on a daily basis! My problems stem from 35 years in front of a computer screen using one hand to type. I am a congenital amputee and I do not have a left hand. Kjersten Marlow never shrank from the challenge. I have learned a lot from our sessions over the past 11 months. My daily experience is much improved because of Kjersten’s expansive knowledge as well as the knowledge I have gained from our therapy sessions. I have hope that I can continue to improve my quality of life because of what I have learned from our sessions.
Kjiersten has been a massive help and her program and methods have helped me eliminate several chronic issues I have had in my body and swing. She has been tremendous and is HIGHLY recommended to anyone wanting to improve their golf game, physical/mental fitness, or general health. You will not regret working with her!
Without a doubt, the best physiotherapy services in the triangle.
I am extremely grateful Kjersten was recommended to me when I developed lower back pain that was restricting my movement. I was feeling anxious and having a hard time getting through the workday. Kjersten was incredible. Through her attentive listening and keen observations she was able to pinpoint the source of my discomfort and provide significant relief within our first 1hr session. She then set forth identifying a tailored treatment plan that had my pain quickly eliminated while also improving my core strength and balance.
I was impressed by her expertise, responsiveness, thoughtfulness, and the care she took to help me understand my own body and the interconnectedness of all its parts. i looked forward to our sessions. I recommend TherExcel Sports Performance & PT with full confidence.
Kjersten was so wonderful to work with when I tore meniscus and cartilage in my knee. She was honest and caring and really helped me to get me back up doing a sport I love. She asked lots of questions and even helped me with another health issue. Kjersten is very knowledgeable and I will be referring her to everyone I know.
Like any parent who knows nothing about golf, I was eager to find someone for my 11-year-old son, Luke, with a background in both Physical Therapy and Sports performance. Because my son carries a diagnosis of Hypotonia (muscle weakness) a physical therapist’s input seemed appropriate. I was particularly interested in Ther Excel Sports golf performance program because of Ms. Kjersten Marlow’s expertise, training, and knowledge as both a Physical Therapist and a golf Specialist. Ms.Kjersten Marlow brings a wealth of knowledge to the sports program which can best describe as a combination of observation, analysis, teaching, and demonstration. Her efforts extended well beyond the routine correction of body mechanics. She is a great teacher, providing a relaxed and no-nonsense interpersonal instructional style. Her diagnostic skills are excellent. Her interventions for change are both systematic and broad-based. She has recommended adjustments related to both Luke’s physical needs (core strength) and a broad-based holistic philosophy associated with sport, health, and lifestyle considerations (i.e., diet, exercise, rest, practice habits, sleep, etc.). Her practice recommendations are always focused and well defined and given as homework. The sessions are reinforced with written literature and video clips.
She is quick to identify areas of both strength and weakness on the one hand but incredibly careful not to overwhelm with too much information too soon. She uses Journaling as a way for Luke to document his efforts. progress and compliance with assigned homework activities. Journaling may not work with all kids, but it works for Luke. He enjoys the process of writing and giving his opinion on an assigned task. Ms. Marlow has done an excellent job of establishing and building rapport. Luke is fully engaged and committed to the process. She is skillful in redirecting his sometimes-silly personality. He is receptive and responsive to her teaching.
We are now about in the middle of a ten-session package. We feel we have already got more than our money’s worth.

I suffered from chronic back pain for several years and tried many different supplements and various treatments. Nothing seemed to work and at age 60, I was not willing to give up my ultra-active lifestyle. After 5 short treatments from Kjersten, with the TrueRelief device, my back is dramatically better. Additionally, Kjersten suggested many minor lifestyle changes that have helped me improve.
Being 17 and an avid golfer, I was already very set in my ways with how i played golf. Kjersten made some small changes, mainly involving my setup, and overnight I picked up distance. Along with this, my accuracy got much better. I have also had many back problems because of golf, and Kjersten helped me relieve pressure on my back throughout the swing. The result is a pain free swing that has a lot more power! Even my putting has improved greatly, as it is now properly controlled with my body. I highly recommend Kjersten to any golfer!
I have been playing golf for a long time, and over the past few years, my play was getting worse – I went from a 4 index up to a 7 in the space of two years. I had no idea what to do, as my lessons weren’t helping me regain my feel for the game. I had also been suffering with some lead wrist and elbow pain. After my first session with Kjersten, she identified several flaws in my set-up that were preventing me from playing well.
After making simple changes in my set-up and posture, my ball striking improved immediately. My scoring got dramatically better quickly too. Club speed with the driver increased from 104 to 109 mph, and my driving distance is up by 30 yards. Most importantly, my accuracy has never been better. In less than 3 months, my index has dropped below a 1, and I feel like I have more to accomplish.
