Patient Success Story - Amy Meldgin

I am the happiest of Dr B's patients!!!! After 3 half marathons my right knee was stopping me in my tracks. I was scheduled for another race in a few weeks but my knee wouldn't let me go past mile 8 and was getting worse. I met Dr B at Fleetfeet and figured I would make an appt since she seemed to understand the runners mindset. Minutes into my appt she diagnosed my problem. The I-band. I didn't even know I had one!!! I had feared the worst but found my condition to be very treatable with minimal down time. She taught me how to use the foam roller and other exercises to ease the pain immediately. I still use them.... Sometimes in the middle of a race even. I now recognize the symptoms way in advance. I would recommend Dr B to any one.
