There are some things only a fellow runner can understand.
That’s why the experts at Summit Orthopedics brought together a group of physicians and physical therapists who are not only exceptional at treating running injuries, but also are runners themselves. They get it, because they’ve been there and understand the nuances of running.
Running injuries require special and specific care, to the point that some physicians even avoid taking on runners’ injuries. Finding the balance of continued activity, treatment and the rest required to heal is not easily mastered. Diagnosis and treatment requires not only excellent diagnostic skills but a sound and appropriate understanding of the unique expectations and requirements of runners. This is the level of care you can expect from Summit and the running specialists.
