Catoctin Foot and Ankle has had a Loudoun Valley High School senior shadowing Dr Phipps the month of May.
She is considering a career in Orthopaedics and was able to follow and be part of the diagnosing and treatments and was also able to observe surgeries in the operating room at Inova Loudoun. It’s always a pleasure having future medical students in the office!!

Heel pain! If you have ever had it, or still have it, you know what I'm talking about. Pain and stiffness in the heel when getting out of bed in the morning or after you've been sitting down for a while and you go to get up. Sometimes it's so bad it is constant and keeps you from doing what you love. Whatever the scenario it's annoying and good news it's treatable! I know you're probably thinking I've tried stretches, ice bottles, etc. Maybe you even got some weird spikey ball or some other concoction off the internet or catalog that promises to end your suffering. I too have dealt with this and know what a hassle it can be. I also know that with proper treatment it will go away. What a lot of people don't know is that the heal pain is not the real issue. The real issue is having a tight Achilles tendon. Most people walking around today have tight Achilles tendons and don't even know it. It is a consequence of our bipedal motion as well as how active or inactive we are. The secret to treating the heel pain is treating the Achilles tendon. Most of the time with conservative measures this issue will go away on it's own, sometimes it can take a little while but it will go away. Make an appointment today and we can get a treatment program set up for you so you can get on with your life.

One of the most common things I see on a daily basis is people with flat feet or pes planus. Everyone has heard of pronation. The fact is, everyone pronates. Some just more than others. Pronation is the act of the foot unlocking so it can adapt to uneven terrain. (i.e. think of walking across a grassy field) However, just as the foot needs to unlock to adapt, it needs to lock back up in order to create a stable platform for push off and normal walking, this is called supination. People with flatfeet continue to pronate and therefore are unable to get adequate supination for push off leading to foot, more specifically arch, pain. Sometimes they don't even have any pain in their feet but instead feel discomfort in their ankles, knees, hips and even lower back. This is very commonly seen in children and adolescents and is usually flexible meaning that when they are not weight bearing the foot reverts back to a more anatomically correct position. However, with age, the flexibility of the flatfoot can turn more rigid leading to more discomfort and potential problems. The good news is this is very successfully treated by myself and the staff at Catoctin Foot and Ankle Center! If this is an issue for yourself or someone you know, make an appointment for a consultation for yourself, friend, or family member and take advantage of our resources to get you back on your feet and enjoying life to its fullest.

Anecdotes are not evidence | Running Research Junkie

With the weather becoming more favorable for outdoor activities, i.e. running, I have had my usual influx of "runners" come to my office and inevitably I get the questions about barefoot (minimalist) vs running shoes. I personally see the benefits of both however I caution my patients to avoid the trends as what works for some may not work for others and the risk of injury that could sideline or even permanently damage someone is not worth the risk. Do your research or even bring your questions to me and I'd be happy to evaluate you and your shoes.

Like anyone else who writes about medical or health topics when reporting and commenting on science, I always get responses with anecdotes about what was written with it either does or does not apply to them. Anecdotes and testimonials always turn up in the comments sections. While they may be impor...

Saw a young woman with an severe ankle sprain this morning. It was her third rolled ankle in as many weeks with the most recent being just yesterday. She currently plays basketball for one of the local high schools and was in a lot of pain and frustrated. I see this a lot. Recurrent ankle sprains. It is a very common injury and is also very treatable. The biomechanics of the ankle joint make it very prone to injury, especially in those that participate in high impact activity. Although that is not always the case as I see just as many people who injure their ankles just with everyday walking. Most of the time they are not given enough time to heal and the patients return to their regular activities and soon enough they are back in the office now having dealt with it for multiple weeks and sometimes months or even years. Being an active person myself I understand how hard it is to take time off, although I can say that most activity does not have to be completely stopped during injury, just modified. Ankle sprains usually take 4-6 weeks to heel depending on their severity and lasting effects from the sprain can continue on for upwards of a year or more. I mean things like stiffness and swelling in the injured ankle. The goal of treatment is rest so the body can heal but also educating the patient on how to strengthen the ankle so it is not a recurring injury. There are those that are born with "weak ankles" or looser ligaments however, being one of those myself, I do believe that with regular strengthening exercises the ankle can become more stable and less injury prone. If you or someone you know had or has this issue and it continues to be a problem. Make an appointment today or shoot me a message, if your not local, and I'll help you out.

Did you know that a lot of kids suffer with heel pain as well? Especially active kids which there is no shortage of here in NoVA. Although it is the equivalent of plantar fasciitis in adults it is not the same thing. It is something known as calcaneal apophysitis which means inflammation of the growth plate on the heel. It happens in boys and girls but is more common in boys ages 10-14. It is also caused by tight Achilles tendon and is treated much the same way as plantar fasciitis although at times more aggressive treatment may be needed due to difficulties with compliance in children and young adults. If your child notices sharp pains in their heels with activity or when getting up from a rested position or if you notice them walking on their tip toes a lot, make an appointment to see a foot and ankle specialist. Like most medical issues, the earlier the diagnosis the better the prognosis! The quicker they can get back to having fun too!
