Have Heel  Pain? Help Is On The Way! 

It seems that Spring is officially here in Virginia and with it comes some exciting news from us!  We are working on a great new project that is 'Coming Soon' to Charlottesville and Waynesboro: The Heel Pain Center of Central Virginia. 

Heel pain is the most common thing that we treat so we have decided to create a world class heel pain center focused on utilizing the latest technology and the most current heel pain treatments to get real results!

We will keep you posted on the progress but for now, please FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOK for the latest updates!  


If you or a loved one are experiencing foot & ankle pain, we hope you will consider our practice. Please CONTACT us or fill out the form on our WEBSITE to make an appointment. We can usually accommodate you on the SAME DAY!

Charlottesville Running Expo


We mentioned last month that we were planning to participate in  the first annual Charlottesville Running Expo on April 8th and 9th at Main Street Arena.   It was great to meet the thousands of runners who ran the Marathon, Half Marathon and 8K that weekend in Charlottesville and their families.

We answered lots of questions about foot and ankle pain and handed out samples of Biofreeze which the runners loved!  

Its cold application reduces the sensation of pain and inflammation, while the cold and re-warming stimulates the healing of tissue.

Check out our booth.  We hope to see you there next year!  You can find race photos, results and registration for 2012 HERE!   


It Only Takes A Minute...

Most people become more and more active as it warms up outside.  Spring is a great time of year to evaluate whether it's time for new running shoes! We shared these tips at the Running Expo and thought they may be useful to you too! The proper shoes are VERY important for healthy feet and ankles.  Please take a moment to check out your shoes and replace them if needed! If you need suggestions for the best shoes, sign up for our Recommended Shoe List!
