Do you have pain from playing golf?
Golf may seem like a leisurely game, but it can be strenuous on your feet. There are a lot of balance and rotational forces at work. Proper support is imperative to keeping your feet feeling good and improving your golf game.
How do you treat these common injuries?
Most injuries that arise from golf can be treated conservatively in our office. Simple R.I.C.E. (rest, ice, compression, elevation) can help with minor injuries. If your pain is not going away you may have sprained your foot or aggravated your arthritis, and it is important to get it evaluated and properly treated. Orthotics can help to provide proper support and reduce your pain. There are other conservative and surgical treatments that can be performed, depending on your injuries.
We at Maricopa Foot and Ankle understand that even a small foot issue can be very painful and debilitating, so give us a call at 520-494-1090 and let us help get you back to your activities pain free!
