GolfThe golf swing is a complex sequence of coordinated upper and lower limb movements that require both freedom of motion and stability. However, a golfer’s own physical and biomechanical limitations can influence function which can lead to injury.
The London Podiatry Centre has treated elite and recreational golfers over the years and we focus on the mechanics of the lower limb, foot and ankle. At The London Podiatry Centre we do not involve ourselves in optimising a golfer's swing and technique and we leave this to expert golf coaches with whom we are always happy to work.
A golfer will typically walk almost 10km during an 18-hole course and a sub optimal gait pattern can cause premature fatigue, soft tissue stress and predispose to injury which can prevent you from playing golf. A detailed, objective gait analysis can be utilised to help improve lower limb function and help to treat any lower limb injury that has developed as a result of playing golf. We will also provide you with detailed information out the best golf shoe for you and also offer semi-bespoke golf shoe modification where appropriate.
