Injured your knee? Knee pain keeping you off the course?

Golf knee injuries are common. The twisting motion of the swing, crouching to line up a putt and walking the course all put a strain on your knees.

Golf Knee Injuries

Golfing knee injuries are common. The twisting motion of the golf swing, squatting down to line-up a put or remove the ball from the hole can put a lot of stress on your knees.  

Knee cartilage (meniscus) tears are something I see a lot of. Cartilage naturally weakens as we age so you may be unaware you have sustained an injury until symptoms develop.

A minor tear can usually be managed with painkillers and physiotherapy. A more severe injury, where you experience a locking sensation, or are unable to straighten the knee may need surgery.

If you suffer from arthritis you’ll know that playing a round of golf can be difficult. You may be able to manage your pain with rest, painkillers and anti-inflammatories. Treatments such as anti-inflammatory injections, joint lubricating injections, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections can help you control your symptoms.

Did you know that many people play golf after having had a new knee? Many see their handicap improve, although this is not guaranteed!

How can I look after my knees when playing golf?

  • Warm up and stretch before playing to reduce the risk of injury.

  • Avoid long distance shots when possible. To reduce the chance of sustaining a knee injury club down for shorter distance strokes, using short iron or pitching wedges.

  • Use soft spikes to decrease the forces across the knee.

  • Rotate your lead leg out to the side at about 20-40 degrees during set-up to reduce the amount of twist and pressure on the knee during the swing.

  • Use a ball retriever so you don’t have to squat down to retrieve the ball.

  • Using ice for about 20 minutes between rounds, but never put the ice directly onto the skin.
