The Drs: Dr Travis Foot Pain
Dr Travis Stork revealed that after playing basketball 20 years ago, he developed severe arthritis in his big toe joints. He had to have surgery on both his toes, but unfortunately, it didn’t go very well. As he’s gotten older, the pain has continued to get worse, but he never addressed it. He hasn’t been able to play basketball in ten years.
Thankfully, biking didn’t seem to hurt too much, but it started to become painful over time. He finally realized he needed to address it, so he went in for therapy and saw Danielle Orland, owner of Body Connection Physical Therapy.
Danielle explained that his sneakers offered him no support at all. She also measured his range of motion and realized that he had very little mobility. Dr Stork said wasn’t sure why he let it get so bad, but worked on mobility and flexibility. He also got orthotics to help. Dr Stork said he ignored it because he thought it was silly. He said he realized the best thing to do is address the injury and not wait for it to get worse. He also realized how important it is to wear the right pair of shoes.
