running treadmill

I treat a wide variety of sports-related aches, pains, and injuries involving the feet and ankles. While there is no sure fire way to avoid all of these issues, there are some common workout methods that can aggravate your feet more than others. Over the years, I have learned to ask for detailed info on…

massive crowd running

As a podiatrist and a runner/triathlete, I know personally and professionally how important it is to take the proper steps to train for a race. Perhaps you have never run a race before and are training for your first 5k. Or, maybe you are more advanced and are ready to take on your first marathon….

3 Common Injuries in Athletes: Tendonitis

In the first blog, we talked about stress fractures being the first of the three most common injuries we typically see in athletes. Today, let’s dive into #2 and #3, and talk about causes, prevention and treatment. 2. Tendonitis Once again, this injury is from overuse. The most common type of tendonitis we see involving…

triathlon training

I am new to the triathlon arena and I have signed up for the Boulder Half Ironman this fall.  I have been training through the winter but not as much as I had hoped. Now that the weather is getting nicer,  I have really tried to ramp it up. I am finding training for the…

treat meal

My favorite treat meal A fond memory from my childhood is the smell of homemade cinnamon rolls wafting out from the kitchen. My mom would make these on Saturdays, and I sure did love to eat them. For all I knew back then, that was the breakfast of champions. Now, it’s my favorite treat meal….

shoe size changing

Are my feet really growing? If you are in your 30’s or 40’s and you swear your feet must be growing because your shoes are getting tight, you are not alone. I am often asked by patients “Why are my feet a different size than they were when I was younger?” This is actually very common…

heel pain in kids

I’ll start by mentioning that I am not a big fan of this condition being referred to as a “disease.”  That word tends to upset needlessly. It’s not a “disease,” but is simply an inflammation of a growth plate in active children. A more accurate name is Sever’s Calcaneal Apophysitis, but that doesn’t exactly roll off the…

Dr, James Anderson

Spring is almost here, and with it comes that wonderful weather we all enjoy so much. After spending the winter months cooped up inside, I can’t wait to be outdoors and soak up the Colorado sunshine. Although Thanksgiving was many months ago now, I find myself realizing that being mindful of what I’m grateful for…

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,…

sports ankle sprain

When it’s back to school time, we’re also back to fall or spring sports, gym class, and recess. Summer is also often a time for additional sports activities or neighborhood pickup games.  With any physical activity comes the risk of sports related injuries. The most common of these is ankle sprains, which in my opinion…
