Foot Pain Affecting Your Golf Swing?

May 6, 2017 podiassociates

With THE PLAYERS Championship teeing off soon and the weather warming up, now is the perfect time to head to your favorite golf course. Although golf is not a contact sport, it still puts tremendous strain on the body; especially your feet. Whether golfers realize it or not, foot pain can negatively affect their game by causing golf foot injuries.

Three common pain-prone spots on your feet include the ball of your foot, your heel, and your big toe. Pain in these areas is generally caused by many common foot conditions including neuromas, heel pain and arthritis of the big toe. These foot problems can hinder your aim and divert your focus as you prepare for and follow through with your swing. Now is the best time to ensure your feet are healthy and ready to hit the green.

If you believe your golf game is being affected by any of the foot conditions mentioned above, please schedule an appointment at one of the Podiatry Associates of Florida locations nearest you. The Podiatry Associates of Florida team can help you identify symptoms, treatment and prevention of various golf foot injuries. Let Podiatry Associates of Florida help you get back into the swing of things!
