Avoid Golfing Injuries: Wear Appropriate Shoes

With the weather heating up and golf season in full swing, you may be in the market for a new pair of golf shoes. You may be picking up a golf club after a few months off, or you may be picking one up for the first time.

Either way, you may be surprised to learn that golfing injuries in the feet and ankles aren’t uncommon and the shoes you choose to play in can be an important factor in keeping your feet injury-free.

While playing golf, you spend a lot of time walking and standing around. This can lead to general foot pain. It is also not uncommon for golfers to suffer blisters, neuromas, and ligament sprains.

You can help to avoid these problems by picking out a good pair of golf shoes. It is important when shopping to look for shoes that are lightweight. With all the walking you will be doing, this is vital. They also need to be very well-cushioned in the foot and heels.

Since you will be walking around on different terrains, you will need good traction on the shoes and they should be water resistant as well, but make sure they are made of a breathable material.

The fit in a golf shoe might feel a little different to you from the fit of a regular shoe. The middle of the shoe should be a little tighter than in a regular shoe to help support your golf swing.

Some golfers wear spikes on their shoes, but some golf courses have rules against them, so be sure to check and see if the golf course you plan on playing on does.

If you are suffering from foot pain and would like to set up an appointment with our office, you can contact us at 615-220-8788 or at our toll-free number 888-713-0906. You can also request an appointment online.
