Welcome to my new blog. I am honored to share information, insights and ideas with my colleagues. It is my hope that by sharing my experiences with the readers of Podiatry Today, you will be encouraged and inspired in your efforts when treating patients affected with wounds of varying etiologies.
I have a special interest in the debate over preventive ankle bracing in athletes. In fact, I have voiced my opinion several times over the past two years in articles and blogs in Podiatry Today (see http://bit.ly/cs4JkR and http://bit.ly/qdlUJ9 ).
Most of my previous opinions about preventive ankle bracing have remained consistent. However, I have begun to rethink recommendations I have made in previous articles because of two recent studies. Specifically, I have changed my mind about recommending preventive ankle bracing for adolescent athletes.
