Knee Pain

Select an injury location on the golf player

What is Knee Pain?

Knee pain is fairly common in golfers. Weight bearing and rotational forces on the knee during the golf swing, in addition to prolonged walking can aggravate existing knee injuries and lead to knee pain, particularly in the leading knee. Often the original knee injury is sustained doing a different activity or sport, but later in life golf becomes the activity that causes knee swelling and pain. Previous injuries to the meniscus (cartilage) or cruciate ligaments can predispose the knee joint to Arthritis that can flare up due to the stresses placed on the knee during golf.

What can you do to prevent Knee Pain?

Pain in the knee joint can lead to weakness of the Quadriceps (thigh) muscles. This leads to a vicious circle of further knee joint instability and more pain, leading to more inhibition and muscle weakness. Exercises to maintain Quadriceps and Hamstring muscle strength are encouraged to provide support for the affected joint. This strengthening should be done under the supervision of a Chartered Physiotherapist.

Gel Cushion Insoles in golf shoes can reduce the stress on the knees during golf. This can help to prevent knee pain symptoms and provide a more comfortable round of golf.

What should you do if you suffer knee Pain?

A rest from golf is usually needed to prevent further stress on the knee joint. Ice Packs can be applied for periods of twenty minutes every couple of hours (never apply ice directly to the skin as it can cause an ice burn). Alternatively an Aircast CryoCuff ice and compression device can relieve knee pain and swelling.

A Knee Brace can provide support and help to relieve knee pain during golf. Knee pain from Arthritis tends to be worse in colder weather so many people find that a Neoprene Knee Support can provide warmth and support. A more advanced Osteoarthritis Knee Brace can improve the alignment of the knee, prevent further degeneration of the knee joint and provide relief from Arthritis pain.
