While playing on a typical 18-hole golf course, a golfer walks up to five miles, which adds up to about three to five hours of standing and walking. In addition to spending many hours on your feet, the biomechanics of a powerful, successful swing also rely on properly-positioned feet. Golf shoes should therefore be comfortable, lightweight, and well-cushioned, with a snugger-than-usual fit in the mid-shoe area for support during swings. They should be made of a breathable, water-resistant material. The sole should provide traction; serious golfers may choose to wear spikes for additional traction and stability. There are many different types of spikes available, and some golf courses have regulations as to what types of spikes can be worn. When trying on golf shoes, always wear the socks you will actually wear while golfing to ensure a proper shoe fit.
I love that Dr. Jameson actually sat down with me, and we looked at the x-rays together. She pointed out everything I needed to see then circled the problem area and explained it so that I knew exactly what my problem was. She was very professional and knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend her to friends.

I was very impressed with the care my daughter received from Dr. Jameson. I was able to schedule a next-day appointment for a new patient. The doctor was efficient and knowledgeable, and her positivity was very comforting for my daughter (who was anxious and in pain). The office staff and x-ray tech were also great. […]
I went to Dr. Green with a pain in my toe. He examined me, took x-rays and diagnosed my problem. He recommended orthotics. They were custom made and fitted by the doctor and his staff. My pain is now gone!

Dear Dr. Green, Thank you and your wonderful office and surgical staff for the excellent care I received. I think my foot is gorgeous and now I’m getting ready to paint my toenails. I haven’t done that for years!
