Man Posing After Hitting a Golf Shot

Fall is a great time to hit the golf courses in the Atlanta Area. We have some of the most beautiful and greatest golf courses around! According to Golf Digest, Augusta National Golf Course is the top course in Georgia. Wasn’t it exciting to watch Patrick Reed capture the Masters Championship this year in Augusta? Take a look at Golf Digest’s complete list of “The Best Golf Courses in Georgia”  here.

If you’re hitting the golf course for the first time, reentering the game, or playing on an almost daily basis, there are common golf injuries to be aware of. Most of these issues are caused by overuse of your muscles, poor techniques or mechanics and repetitive movements. There are occasions when trauma causes a golf injury as well.

Golf is a relatively low physical impact sport, when compared to sports such as football and soccer. For this reason, preventing a golf injury is fairly easy. You should learn and employ proper swing mechanics. Obtain golf-specific conditioning programs. Utilize equipment fitted and suited for your specific size and needs. Avoid over use or long practice sessions that require repetitive movements over long periods of time. Always warm up and cool down properly after playing or practicing golf.

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.
