“As a skier and hockey player in college, my passion became the biomechanics and function of the lower extremity. As an athlete, I was intrigued to learn that the way the foot contacts the ground is a key component for athletic performance and injury prevention. This concept applies to everyone from the professional athlete, to children taking their first steps, to even diabetic patients dealing with complex multiple comorbidities. Today, I love to put a patient on the treadmill and offer them suggestions to improve their gate.”
