Golfers Foot pian

I am having pain in my left foot - Arch and heel are very painful. It started after playing golf with new golf shoes. I thought it might be the shoes and since have played with out them and still have the pain. I am flat footed and ware arch supports to minimize tiredness for walking all day. Day after I first felt the pain I had gone to my chiropractor for tightness in my lower and middle back. Since I have had this constant ach, and sharp pain in the heel. Chiropractor has never heard of anyone having foot pain after treatment. I have used cold packs to minimize some of the pain which has helped but until now I have never had any problems with my left foot.
I had not played much golf until lately, is it possible that playing golf is causing my foot pain? Can playing golf put pressure and twiting on my left foot to cause Achilles Tendonitis?

You can change the way you play, stand and apply pressure on the back of your foot by some corrections in your foot play. With these corrections you will no longer put that pressure on the back of your foot. Selecting footwear is very important for you knowing the flat foot you have, take the help of a specialist in selecting the footwear, take care!

Ok, take time in selecting the foot wear and correct your problem before playing golf. As your health is most important and you should avoid causing any more trouble. Take care!
