In most cases, non-surgical treatment options are the solution to ending your pain and bringing you back to a full and healthy life. Dr. Herman will guide you through your best options for treatment, and if surgery or another form of care may be needed, he will refer you to the appropriate provider.
If you’re a runner, it’s likely that you have, are, or will experience some kind of pain in your hips, knees, and/or feet. Dr. Herman will work with you to resolve these issues. However, whether a running injury or non-running injury, our approach is often to remove a negative before adding a positive. That means that if your running form is a contributing factor to your pain, not correcting the cause (bad technique) and only resolving your pain may not yield long-term results.
To the runner without pain, by improving running technique, you can become a more efficient runner and that means faster times, more enjoyment, and bragging rights after races.
Running evaluations not only include an analysis of your running, they also include an evaluation of your shoes and some discussion on your nutrition and training plans. Recommendations will be made based on findings.
