Complimentary Approach Grows, But Some Challenges Remain according to The Sports Doctor as featured in Lower Extremity Review. Read the full story.

Lower Extremity Review can be both proud and excited about its 10th anniversary and its participation in all aspects of sports medicine and podiatry, rehab, fitness, and wellness. As for what the next decade holds, I predict implementing the input and expertise from all the medical specialties, along with educators, trainers, and therapists of all backgrounds, will continue to grow. The integration of concepts from both western and Eastern medicine for a truly holistic approach and the burgeoning attention to mind-body awareness will continue to flourish. Non-physician disciplines such as physical therapy, acupuncture, massage, meditation, and nutrition will all play larger roles as we seek to improve the health and performance of not just athletes but everyone—young children through older adults. Indeed, there is much to be done: We need all the help we can get!...

Congratulations Dr. Bob on your induction into this prestigious group - Class of 2019 National FitnessHall of Fame! Read the full story.
