Houston Podiatrist Understands Running & Triathlon Injuries

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

Our office continues to be open to all new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. If you prefer to wait in your car, just give us a call and we will call or text you when we are ready to bring you straight into a treatment room. Our entire staff is wearing masks and we encourage you to do the same.

For those patients who cannot or still wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

Runners have two very important pieces of equipment – their feet. Whether you are walking a 5k or training for a marathon, you need healthy feet to train and race. If you are a runner or triathlete experiencing foot or lower leg pain, you should see a podiatrist. Don’t wait for your running injury to stop you from running. Heel pain, Achilles pain, shin splints, IT band issues, hip pain – these are all running related injuries that can stem from the feet. We look at your mechanics to make sure you are running and walking as efficiently as possible. We do a comprehensive gait analysis where we watch you walk to examine the phases of your stride and identify any inefficiencies. Custom orthotics are often a great way to keep you running without extended time off. Every situation is different, so call us today at 713-785-7881 for more information or to make an appointment.
