As an active marathon runner he has come to understand many ailments related to the lower extremities.  His first hand experience with injuries has led him to specialize with runners and athletes. He ran his first marathon at the age of 53, and is currently running two races per year. His passion is teaching his patients the latest and most revolutionary concepts and techniques regarding MINIMALIST RUNNING.
