Pulled a hamstring in my left leg a couple of months back and while the pain has dimished to a tolerable level it's still not 100%. Using a roller as prescribed by a therapist and oddly enough, the leg feels better when I'm golfing vs. sitting as long as I don't overdo it. Yesterday, I played 9 and then sat out every other hole on the back  in league.

Reading up on pulled hamstrings, normal recovery time is 6-8 months 😱

Hopefully you can continue to get out and play, hamstring injuries can't be fun.

6-8 months😱

Seems like an awful long time, can you do anti inflammatory drugs?

Thanks.  Mine arrived last Friday.  I've worn them to work in my combat boots a couple times and they're definitely going to help.  I've also got them in my workout shoes.

Only problem/setback was Saturday...I walked 18, and I went to put them in my Spieth 2 shoes, which are already kind of narrow and snug, and the orthotic made the shoe too narrow and snug.  Haven't tried them in my HOVR's, but I suppose if I wear orthotics all week it won't be the end of the world to not have them for golf, right?

I would attempt to find something close as an over the counter option for your golf shoes if the customs won’t fit. Pretty important to keep the biomechanics as close as possible since it sounds like you have plantar fasciitis relatively in check right now

Oddly enough, tylenol works best. Normally that's not my go to - but at this point whatever works.

I'll be at an Ohio outing this year even if I have to put a piece of leather between my teeth for pain management.

We still have the same body parts at our age - they just aren't used as much as when we were 47 😜

Been fighting my flat feet (specifically the right foot) for the better part of a year now, when it flares up I cannot put any pressure on my foot. But I should be getting new shoes today and custom orthotic inserts tomorrow, then I should be able to get back into the game.

Anyone have any experience playing through a little golfers elbow that can recommend a good compression brace you wore while playing?  I am experiencing some for the first time...not debilitating but I want to get on top of it before it is.

I wish you lived near me. There’s a guy here that is a wizard. He’s a physical therapist, but has learned to stretch people while “holding” or manipulating certain muscles/tendons. He’d have you back to 100% in no time! For years he’s helped me with my back, tight hamstrings, sciatica, etc. Seriously, he’s a wizard at “working out the kinks”. It’s unreal. He literally holds on the muscles and various areas as he stretches me. When he’s done, I feel like a million bucks!

Foot pain is a biotch!   Especially if you walk a lot so good luck on some relief and more miles to ya.

Well damn, I wish that too!

I spent last night icing, massaging with a Theragun, and ordering 3 different compression braces on Amazon.  Once they get here I’ll head to the range and see which one helps the most and is easiest to swing with.

Apparently it’s basically an overuse injury, which doesn’t seem like I should have, but I suppose with all the Orange Whip practices and warm-ups, SuperSpeed, and weight training...maybe I can see it.  The real fix is rest, but I live in Nebraska...I’ll rest when the season is over!

I think @jlukes has had some success with a brace. If it was him I’m sure he’ll chime in.

Not for the elbow - the Wrist Widget was a fantastic little brace that helped heal (and allowed me to play through) some wrist pain caused by TFCC damage

I might have to look at that for myself, got TFCC damage (among other wrist problems) that annoy me to varying levels most of the time

Have you found stretches to do? I know RICE, rest-ice-compression-elevation, with some anti-inflammatories are usually the fix, but there’s golf to be played!!!!

I’ll text my guy DJ, the wizard, and see what he recommends.

I found some exercises that are more isometric hold strengthening movements than stretches.

Thanks for contacting him for me!
