Here at Gordon Podiatry we know that Sports Medicine is more than just treating patients that are athletes. Sports medicine involves the knowledge and understanding of biomechanical principles, alignment, and gait analysis. We use the understanding that the body works as a unit from your foot to your knees and hips to treat lower extremity conditions. We focus on more than just the one area of pain, we focus on the whole patient.
