Diagnosing Your Injury
At your appointment, our podiatrist will perform a comprehensive physical exam and run tests such as x-rays and MRIs to diagnose your sports injury. He will collaborate with you to develop a treatment plan unique to your specific needs.

Consider Your Shoes
The shoes you wear play a role in your performance as an athlete. The right shoes could make all the difference, so even though they may not be the first thing that comes to your mind, they could have a huge impact on your ultimate skill level.
You may find yourself wondering about some of the terminology used in athletic shoes as you consider what type of shoes you want to use. Even your socks can have an impact, but how?
No matter what your questions are, we can help you determine the best choices for you and the type of activity you enjoy.
