Your feet and ankles absorb the brunt of your body weight, so it’s only natural to eventually experience foot and ankle pain even if you haven’t suffered a traumatic injury.
A lot of my patients come to me without having knowledge about why they are experiencing their symptoms in the first place, or not knowing how to deal with previously diagnosed “chronic conditions,” along with complete frustration about changes they are forced to make in their lifestyle.
I work with people of all ages and all walks of life, but my experience working with elderly patients (a passion of mine), combined with my recent rotation serving active duty military personnel, has me focused on determining deliberate but aggressive approaches to get all my patients back on their feet as soon as possible, without cutting any corners.
Working as a Podiatrist and Surgeon at Madigan Military Hospital has allowed me to see an incredible array of foot and ankle problems. Active duty soldiers have a sense of urgency when it comes to getting back to full duty, but they also need to know how to treat their injuries once they leave and how to avoid re-injuring themselves moving forward.
And my civilian patients are the beneficiaries of everything I have learned and experienced.
Treatment of many common ailments include:
Mobile Nursing Home - Elderly Care
Working with the elderly is a passion of mine. I offer a mobile service that takes me to retirement communities in the greater Seattle area. I’m currently working with Aegis Living communities and expanding into others. My patients are grateful for the service and thrilled for the attention. As a Podiatrist that sees through the lens of a Naturopath, I can offer senior less invasive treatments whenever possible.
Along with physical fitness and the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports and exercise, many athletes benefit from after training or pre-training intramuscular injections that quickly deliver a medication deep into the muscles. This allows the medication to be absorbed quickly. Intravenous (IV) rehydration is a procedure used to avoid and treat moderate to severe cases of dehydration.
KeryFlex Nail Restoration
KeryFlex is a safe, non-systemic application that restores the appearance of your natural nails. It allows me to remodel your nails that are affected by fungus, nail dystrophies and trauma. The patented resin creates a flexible, non-porous nail that allows the remaining natural nails to grow. The KeryFlex nail is durable and unaffected by acetone, nail polishes or detergents, and does not contain acids like acrylic which can bind to and damage the nail bed.
For decades, healthcare providers have made pastes of crushed marigolds to treat problems that normally require painful surgery. Various species of Marigold are naturally anti-viral, keratolytic, and anti-inflammatory when applied topically to the affected areas. Marigold therapy is a gentle, non-invasive treatment option for various pediatric skin ailments including plantar verruca, painful hyperkeratotic lesions, and inflamed bursa secondary to hallux abducto valgus. It’s completely natural and has no adverse reactions.
Prescription orthotics are custom made inserts worn in your shoes. Orthotics are used to help control symptoms of the feet and lower extremities (in general). Individually constructed from a casted impression of your feet, they are designed to allow the foot to move within its normal range of motion and eliminate unnecessary movement. They can be used in all types of shoes (casual, dress, running, sport cleats).
