Our returning veterans and military service members, healing comes in many forms. But one thing is for certain, therapeutic recreational" activity is highly encouraged when recovering from any disability. Especially the ones not visible to the naked eye. Physical activity and human interaction, promotes healing. Both physical and emotional. The therapeutic golf clinics and self-guided golf rounds, are designed to aid in the achievement of both these goals. It is Peoples Foundations mission to not just improve your golf game but increase mobility, quality of life, and provide positive healthy activities, for ALL members of our community. Most importantly, our disabled military and disabled veterans can participate at no cost...giving back to those who've give so much. All other participants are welcomed, given space/availability as priority is given to our wounded and healing.

Some Basics & General Overview
Therapeutic exercise and activity, are terms defined medically through medical coding. Yet, it helps to understand the differences so it is clear what Peoples Foundation is offering through our therapeutic adaptive golf program and what we are not offering. Therapeutic Exercise, or COT code 97110 involved instructing a patient in specific exercises to address weakness or loss of joint mobility due to disease or injury. The exercises are NOT typically “functional” i.e. everyday living tasks. So, tasks like overhead press with a dumbbell to improve strength can be considered a therapeutic exercise. Whereas Therapeutic activity, CPT 97530, includes the use of “functional” i.e. everyday living dynamic tasks that improve range of motion and strength, and are things that mimic real life activity. CPT coding terminology defines it as: “Therapeutic exercises to develop strength and endurance, range of motion, and flexibility (15 minutes).” These activities can be considered many things to include catching and throwing, see herefor more information.
Adaptive, is an addition and a consideration we’ve included into the program understanding that those who participate may require assisted instruction or equipment in order to support their therapeutic golfing needs i.e. specialized clubs or carts. Adaptive sporting programs and activities are considered adapted, or modified, physical activity designed to meet the individualized gross motor needs, or other disability-related challenges, of a participant. The programs or activities can be provided one-on-on in a small group, or within the general physical education setting.
The Peoples Foundation Therapeutic-Adaptive golf clinics are considered therapeutic exercise/activities that are adapted to support the needs/limitations of our participants in a sporting activity that's considered therapeutic in nature. The participants understand that this is not a medically administered program, its an activity they would normally engage in while seeking and adhering to their own medical professional’s advice on said activity.
California law requires that our foundation has all applicable registrations with the state as well as insurance to support all programs we are running throughout our foundation. For any questions about coverage and application of compliance please contact us and we will be happy to discuss your concerns, as well as provide coverage details to official representatives.
