Yes…You Can Play Better When Your Feet Feel Better
At Dalkey Podiatry clinic we look after the health of your feet, including musco-skeletal foot conditions, such as heel pain, metatarsal pain, and knee pain. We examine your gait and mobility for causes of pain.
Heel and foot pain is a risk for regular golfers. During the golf swing, players put pressure on their feet, as the foot pivots to help fully rotate around a fixed leg position. Therefore, it is very important that any foot pain experienced during golf is correctly identified and managed at an early stage. Heel pain and planter fasciitis is an inflammatory condition of the fascia on the planter aspect of the foot which inserts into the heel bone.
