Common (And Not So Common) Golf Injuries Atlanta, GA
Man Posing After Hitting a Golf Shot

The Masters are over and they’ve left everyone with the desire to head out to the golf course to try to attempt the amazing shots made during the tournament. Golf is a great sport. Most people consider it a relatively safe sport considering the lack of contact involved with other players, objects and the ground. However, golf does have its list of common golf related  injuries associated with it. There are some not-so-common injuries as well. Did you hear about golfer Tony Finau? He hurt his ankle while running backward after making a hole-in-one in the Par-3 Contest before the Masters even started.

According to the Golf Channel and Golf Fitness Magazine there are 10 factors that lead to the most common golf injuries.

  1. Back Pain
  2. Tendinitis in the Elbow
  3. Knee Pain
  4. Rotator Cuff
  5. Wrist Injuries
  6. Hand and Finger Injuries
  7. Neck Injuries
  8. Foot and Ankle Injuries
  9. Hip Injuries
  10. Sunburn

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
