"While there is a lot of discussion about back, hip, and knee injuries in golf, most golf instructors will tell you that the power of a swing is created 'from the ground up.' At the end of follow-through, the great toe of the dominant foot experiences an increase in pressure. This can cause a jamming of the toe into the top of the shoebox. With repetition, the area under the toenail can become injured causing blood to form or the nail to lift from the nail bed," says Jemaar Graham, DPM.

"These types of injuries should not be taken lightly. Even though the toe is a small portion of the body, if not treated, injuries to this area can cause significant pain, infection, and loss of function. Wearing proper fitting shoes and adjustments in the golf swing to prevent the irritation of the nail is necessary to eliminate recurrence," says Dr. Graham.
