San Francisco Podiatrist Lectures on Barefoot Running

Lake Tahoe, NV – February 10, 2012. – Today upon invitation from the International Foot and Ankle Foundation, Dr. Christopher Segler (a San Francisco based sports medicine podiatrist) who treats complicated running injuries in endurance athletes, gave a lecture to a group of sports medicine doctors, reconstructive foot surgeons and podiatric physicians at a medical conference held at the Montbleu Resort and Spa in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Because Dr. Segler is a runner who has a podiatry practice focusing on the treatment of elite runners with complicated running injuries, he was able to share his expertise and opinions on barefoot running with his colleagues in the medical community. The lecture that he gave spoke about barefoot running biomechanics and the differences between the forces applied to the lower extremity when running with shoes as compared to when running barefoot or with minimalist running shoes. He provided recommendations for other physicians to take back to their practices in order to help other injured runners across the United States and Canada.


Dr. Christopher Segler is a foot surgeon, sports medicine podiatrist, runner and Ironman triathlete who’s podiatry practice centers on running injuries affecting the feet, ankles and Achilles tendons. He believes that the very best treatment for any running injury is rapid treatment. He understands that athletes cannot afford to take as much time off from their injuries as sedentary individuals.  For this reason he offers housecalls, phone consultations and immediate access for injured runners in San Francisco, Tiburon, Oakland, Berkeley and Mill Valley. For those who do not live in the San Francisco Bay area he often performs remote consultations via Skype or Internet Web conferencing. He provides consultations for injured athletes worldwide. If you have a running injury that has not been getting better and would like to talk to an expert, you can call and speak with him at 415-308-0833.
