  1. Hello. I have Morton's neuroma in my right foot. I'm applying Ice hot with lidocaína and according to my doctor I have to wait for the next month to see any improvements or he has to do an injection. So does any one have experienced this ? Any advice for treatment or how to avoid this and other injuries? Thanks
  2. I am coming back from a long term injury in my lower back. I am literally starting from scratch. I was playing at a 2 handicap when I had to stop and now it's been 14 months since I've played a complete round of golf with a score. My 2020 goals are to improve my fitness to a level commensurate with (amateur) tournament golf, rebuild my swing from the ground up focusing on driving distance and proximity to the hole on approach shots, and of course putting stats. These goals are in no particular order so my question is where would each of you start and what would be a reasonable expectation for
  3. I have just been diagnosed. I need to play with a splint. Any recommendations? Thx
  4. It seems like this past year or so I'm always having neck or shoulder problems. Just a few months ago, I was dealing with a scapula or trapezius injury on my right side that shut down my workouts for almost a month. Now I have a minor injury on my left side from last week. I felt a tweak in my neck on a swing when it happened but didn't think anything of it because that kind of happens once in a while, but there's a tightness there I haven't been able to shake and a noticeable weakness when I'm doing something like pullups. It doesn't hurt, but it's not 100%. I also jammed my right wrist
  5. Hello there. I thought of buying some hitting mat in order to practice when I am not able to go to the course, but I started to read many users that had issues with their elbows for using those mats. Is it possible to use them without being injured? Would you recommend any mat? Thanks!
  6. I have had extreme pain for almost two years when hitting a golf ball to the point where couldn't play in any club competitions in 2017 and have only attempted a few this year. The pain is on the ulnar side of the wrist around the pisiform and PT joint. I have had an X-ray, MRI scan and two CT scans which have all come back 'fine' and therefore the two consultants I have seen have been unable to diagnose what the problem is. Day to day activities are not affected, there isn't any pain when pressing around the affected areas (making the consultants job even harder) but the pain when
  7. So, I strained my right groin muscle about a month ago. It was feeling better - I still didn't have full power or speed yet, but it was coming along. I strained it playing soccer. Last night I really, really strained it. A good amount of pain. I finished the game. I iced it when I got home. I went to bed. At 5:30 I woke up and knew I was in some trouble. Before, I could walk mostly okay. Today walking was tough. Getting out of bed was tough. Sitting up after sitting down was tough. Coughing or sneezing made it hurt. It's probably a groin muscle, though IANAD. It's on the inside
  8. It's amazes sometimes just how close fans choose to stand and officials and/or players allow them to do so. This past weekend, watching Rory take a full swat off less than a favorable lie with what appears to be a very long, narrow hallway of fans, I was holding my breath . I'm particularly talking about those off the fairway, scramble shots where the open windows are anything but what most of us would attempt. Every year, fans get hit and some injuries are pretty nasty (see attached article). Yes, you accept that risk as part of your ticket, but should the PGA (and LPGA) do more to reduce
  9. Hello, I am hoping someone has experience with this. I have titanium plates and screws on both bones in my forearm on my right arm from an injury. I golf right handed and I have stiff steel shafts. I am in pain 70% of my shots and my question is. Would graphite shafts be more forgiving on my arm? I’ve had the plates since I was 20 and I’m now 41 I doubt i’ll ever get them removed. i have a graphite shafted pitching wedge that I swing for fun and it seems to be less energy transferring to my bones but it is very flexible and obviously not going to match my swing speed. Than
  10. I am subtitling this: “the Tao of Cipher” Last week I was able to play my first full round of golf in over two years. It was not pretty, but it was so much fun. I completely chunked about nine shots and I took at least 4 penalties. I had the absolute best time doing so. A co-worker and I took a couple business partners out and it was very rewarding to be able to do that again. All the hard work, patience and time weighing the tough decisions have been to the benefit of playing again without a concern at this point and without any sort of swing alteration to do so. I am incredibly pl
  11. I find it interesting that early this week I was standing on the spot shown in the photo which is the 18th hole of my local disc golf course and an incredibly heavy feeling of déjà vu came over me. It was as if I were standing there for the first time I had ever played that disc golf course, feeling the weight of the injury and trying to find something to fill the void in which the injury left me with. It cracked me up a bit that back then I could not even throw the disc half way up the hill, and was probably thinking “What the **** am I doing here right now?”. I quickly snapped out of it a
  12. I made it back from our Florida trip on Tuesday night. It was great to get away from my crazy work schedule for a bit, and experience a little sun after the winter here in Wisconsin. We were able to go the beach and do a little fishing as well. My son and I both connected with Snook(bass like but longer fish) which is a lot of fun. Any time you can catch a Snook from the beach with an artificial lure, it is a very rewarding experience. On my lunch break this Wednesday I decided to head over to the range. It was time to give this golf thingamajig another go. I was confident that al
  13. It is pretty incredible for me to realize that this Sunday, April 9th, will mark two years to the day since I was injured while playing golf down in Florida. I have not been able to play a round of golf since. It may seem to some that this is a pretty terrible thing for someone who loves the game of golf. As I have mentioned in the earlier blogs, it was pretty tough at first. I got through that season. The past two years have changed me in so many good ways and I am very thankful for what has happened and what I have been forced to learn through it. I am very pleased as I would ima
  14. Aug-December 2016 - I decided to take the rest of the year off from worrying about anything golf related. I had a lot planned for the rest of that summer and fall. I continued to play disc golf. I also played in a tournament later that summer. I enjoyed doing that and it was a great experience. I like playing in these tournaments because it is how you get an official player rating in disc golf. A player rating in disc golf is similar to a golf handicap but is also very different at the same time. For example, after the two tournaments I played, my current rating is 827. This is probabl
  15. March-July, 2016 - I did not know exactly what to expect when starting physical therapy. I have been lucky enough in the past not to need it due to any other injuries or procedures. One of the first things we tried to do was to check the range of motion. I simply held my arm on the table and tried to rotate the wrist back and forth, palm up and palm down. I was very surprised, as I think the PT was as well, that I only had about 10 degrees of wrist rotation available to me at first. I continued to do the therapy over the next couple months and the wrist very slowly began to regain t
  16. February, 2016 - The first afternoon home from the surgery was not too bad. The meds were kicked in pretty strong and I had very little pain. The toughest thing that day was just the annoyance of having to hold my arm up in the air to keep the swelling down. I did not walk around much as the weight of the cast was enough that I decided to lie down and elevate the arm for the most part. The next day however, things were much different. The wrist area was not really in much pain, but my left shoulder was in some pretty terrible pain. I think it may have been a combination of the way my arm
  17. February 2nd of 2016 came quickly and I was ready to get the surgery over with. I was a bit nervous about the procedure as this was my first real surgery. I really did not know what was going to happen when I woke up and how difficult recovery was going to be. The doctor had explained to me what was going to happen. He was going to do an endoscopy procedure in the wrist first to look at the damage, as the MRI results did not really show everything that he wanted to know before beginning the actual surgery. The worst case scenario was that would have to replace the sheath that cover an
  18. I had a lot of fun playing disc golf, but the fall of 2015 came quickly and I started to prepare for an attempt at swinging the sticks again. I went to the range in the middle part of September and tried some very light swinging. I was not hitting the ball far at all, but it seemed to go pretty well. I was just taking half swings with some wedges and a 7 iron. I was happy with the results and so the next week that I went out I decided to try and use a couple long irons. As soon as I started trying to swing the longer clubs, even with the half swings, I immediately started having problems
  19. The struggle of not being able to play anymore was tough during the summer of 2015. I felt pretty helpless about the situation and was not really sure what to do. I began to slowly unplug golf from my life. I stopped watching and talking about golf as much as possible. Basically I tried to eliminate anything that would cause me to think about not being able to play golf. I took a necessary break from posting on this site for a while as well. There are a few people from TST that continually checked in with me during this time, and I am grateful for that. They know who they are, and probab
  20. After returning home I made an appointment with an orthopedic doctor who specialized in hand and wrist treatment. He did an x-ray to rule out the possibility of any broken bones in the hand or near the wrist. The x-ray showed that there were no bone problems in the wrist. The doctor thought I likely had some kind of tendon problem near the wrist. He really did not know or maybe want to say what at that time. He thought I should first try to immobilize the wrist and put it in a custom splint for about a month. I was asked to check back with him a couple weeks after taking the splint off.
  21. I have had tennis elbow in my left arm for 14 months. I have done all the exercises, had a rest for a few weeks, and I even had a cortisone injection which worked brilliantly for three weeks. I am determined to continue playing golf, and realise that if I am to do so I must change something in my swing. I keep my left fairly straight, but not locked, but every time I strike the ball I feel the muscle stretch. Has anyone any ideas that may help ?
  22. At the end of the summer I suffered a broken foot after participating in a 5k for charity event, shortly before leaving for college, and it left me away from golf clubs until now. I have not swung a club with the intention of hitting a ball in about 3 months, and I desperately want to get back to where I was a long time ago. Over the summer I became obsessed with knowledge, and I attempted to Self-Diagnose my own swing, and those of you on here that are instructors, you know how bad that truly can be. This caused me to refuse advice from obviously more qualified individuals than myself, and ul
  23. As much as I love playing golf, my body doesn't. I presently have two painful shoulders and a sore elbow. As a result of playing golf I have had tennis elbow for a year now. I have tried all the exercises, ice pack, and just about every cream on the market, and nothing has helped it. I have been holding off having a Cortisone jab, but alas I have now given in and booked one for a few weeks time. I was wondering how many of you have had to do the same, did it work, and how much did it work ?
  24. Hey guys, Brand new to this forum -- I just broke my finger and the doctor said it needs to be splinted for the next 6 weeks. Naturally, I immediately asked him about golf and he said that even if I could hold a club it would put stress on the tendons I'm trying to heal. Beyond practicing putting, anyone have any good exercises or recommendations on how to play/improve over the next six weeks?
  25. Only been playing 6 months, and admittedly I am no spring chicken, however this is crazy. I have shoulder impingement in my right shoulder, tennis elbow in my left arm, I am starting to get golfers elbow in my right arm, and my left shoulder is also showing signs of impingement. I spend the evening transferring ice packs and heat pads from one part of my body to another. As well as this I have tried various exercises, which to be honest appear to make the problems worse. When I play, I go out on the course strapped up like a mummy, covered up by a jacket so I don't look to stupid. Someone once
