As an athlete trying to compete at the highest level of sports, foot and ankle health is imperative. Just before getting an opportunity to play at this level, something I had worked my entire life for, an old ankle fracture caught up to me. I had lost strength and range of motion and just was not the same. I eventually had two arthroscopic surgeries. I improved but still wasn’t quite 100%. After consulting with my surgeon, it was determined that I still had scar tissue in the midtarsal joint but that surgery would not be an option. It was at this point I started seeing Dr. Positano. He was confident from the start that if I stuck to his plan, I would not require surgery and I would get back on the field. The confidence Dr. Positano exuded every day was refreshing for someone who was, at that time, out of options. I can’t thank Dr. Positano and his staff enough for their help as I prepare to be back on the field in 2018.
