Our Approach To Greenwich Sports Medicine
Your experience at The Center for Podiatric Care and Sports Medicine begins with a physical examination, medical history interview, and consultation with Dr. Josef J. Geldwert, Dr. Ryan Minara, or Dr. Katherine Lai. All of our sports medicine professionals hold doctorates of podiatric medicine from the New York College of Sports Medicine and anywhere from seven to 40 years experience in the treatment of sports injuries.
We strive to identify the underlying cause of your injury. Our state-of-the-art gait analysis center assesses your biomechanics using computers, video cameras, and treadmill sensors to assess abnormalities in the way you stand, walk, and run. We are also equipped to do x-rays and ultrasound. We not only treat you in our office, but educate you on how to care for yourself at home, to mentally cope with the limited mobility as you heal and prevent future recurrence.
We tailor our treatments to your individual needs and desired outcomes. Greenwich patients can expect a sympathetic ear and compassionate care from our sports medicine doctors. We can help you explore a wide range of alternative treatment options if you wish to avoid medication or surgery. In most cases, we start with the least invasive treatments and reserve surgery as a last resort. If you have tried it all and still suffer from chronic pain, we will explore alternative options with you.
Our expert sports medicine doctors are trained to treat the foot and ankle with:
- Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy
- Focused Aspiration of Scar Tissue (FAST)
- MIX5 Therapy Laser
- MLS Laser
- Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation
Of course, we can also do all the conventional treatments, from the prescription of medication to surgery. We perform surgeries at Beth Israel Medical Center, Mount Sinai or White Plains Hospital. Over the past few decades, our skilled surgeons have performed more than 15,000 procedures. We will send you home with a comprehensive recovery plan and meet with you for rehabilitation following surgery to ensure the best possible outcome.
Computerized Orthotics Scanning
Many athletes come in asking about custom orthotic shoe inserts. We create custom molds that conform to the shape of your feet for greater comfort. Conditions like flat feet, chronic heel pain, arch pain, ankle pain, shin splints, and knee pain respond particularly well to orthotics. A 1991 survey of 347 runners on use of custom orthotics following sports injury found that 75% reported complete or near-complete recovery and 90% kept using their orthotics after recovery.
