Active Life

Get Back to Your Active Life The more time I spend with patients, the more I see that no matter what their symptoms are, their primary desire is essentially the same. They want to get back to their previous activity level, and they want to do it fast. Whether they are a runner, busy parent,…

mobility triangle

I’ve always been a visual learner, and I’ve always liked to teach. I have a passion for helping those with neuropathy, and challenging the status quo in regards to it. Putting all these together, I’ve come up with the concept of the mobility triangle. Why? Well, before I was trained in the treatment of neuropathy…

ingrown toenails in children

Ingrown nails are a very common (and usually very painful) condition for all ages of people.  Approximately three million ingrown nails are treated annually in the US.  This problem is especially common in children between the ages of 9 and 18, and the big toe is by far the most common nail affected.

The alarm went off too early that day. I thought I had it perfectly planned how to get to the airport on time, but it still became a rush to get to the gate to Seattle. This is the intro to my other life. For the last six years, my other life has revolved around…

frustrated toenail fungus

During my time in this practice I have heard toenail fungus described in many different ways, and none of them are nice.  Gross, icky, thick, brittle, deformed, disfigured, discolored nails are one of the most common foot issues that we see.  In most cases this is caused by a fungal infection of the toenails.  Studies…

Stretch Lower Calf Muscle

Stretching is a very useful tool in alleviating tight muscles, loosening up before or after a workout, or just for general wellbeing.
