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.

Dr. Alec Hochstein takes patients from start to finish when it comes to wound care. He is not satisfied until the wound is completely healed. His methods of treatment for non-healing diabetic ulcers is notable. I approached Dr. Hochstein in August of 2014, with a persistent non-healing Diabetic Ulcer. The Ulcer was deep and rather […]
Absolutely the best!! I was recommended to Dr. Hochstein after a unsuccessful bunion surgery where I had been through 5 months of pain, excessive swelling, and eventually a non-Union. I was told I had a healing problem and I’m 31 with no medical conditions. I didn’t know where to turn to or what to do […]
I have been a patient of Dr. Alec Hochstein for over 5 years. Dr. Hochstein and staff are like family. When anyone in my family ever has a foot complaint, or injury, and their have been many, I know help is only a phone call away. Although they are always busy, I have never had […]
