My expertise in Podiatric Sportsmedicine is not from reading a textbook or taking a class. It is from first hand experience. I've been there and done it. In fact, I still do it.
I know what it is like to win. I thrive on the satisfaction of a great performance. But I also know what its like to push yourself so hard that you get sick or injured. I understand the disappointment of those injuries and what it is like to miss the goal you’ve set for yourself.
I’ve also learned that respecting yourself and respecting your sport go hand in hand. Dealing with injuries with prudence and wisdom results in both physical and emotional longevity.
I look forward to working with you in helping you regain your form and fitness. Bring your competitive and non-competitive goals with you. I can work with any coach you might have in a team approach to specialize a treatment plan that will work for your problem. I am familiar with your running and cycling shoes and the stores in town that sell them. I can provide a biomechanical and/or gait evaluation and will provide you with a detailed explanation that you can understand. You and I will work together to formulate a treatment plan that is sound and functions to fix the problem for the long haul.
