A Smarter Approach To IT Band Syndrome & Plantar Fasciitis with guest Dr. Pieter Kroon

Dr. Dave Candy talks with one of his professional mentors, Dr. Pieter Kroon, a fellowship-trained orthopedic manual physical therapist, director of a fellowship program, the Manual Therapy Institute, and owner of Mondo Sports Therapy in Austin, TX. They discuss chronic injuries that are common in runners (as well as the general population) including IT band syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and other tendon injuries.

Key Discussions:

  • Why clinical reasoning and patient education are central to "orthopedic physical therapy done right"
  • Why tendon disorders are so common in runners, especially runners over the age of 40
  • Why stretching tendons that feels "sore" and "tight" isn't the best option, despite what you might read on the internet
  • What can cause pain on the bottom of the foot besides plantar fasciitis?
  • Corticosteroids & orthotics for plantar fasciitis: pros & cons
  • Why tendon problems DO get better, but not in 1-2 visits
  • and MORE!
