Lake Tahoe, NV – February 9, 2012. –International Foot and Ankle Foundation, Annual Seminar held at the Montbleu Resort and Spa in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. 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, foot surgeons and podiatrists. The lecture focused on the treatment of complicated running injuries. Running injuries are known to be difficult primarily because runners expect to get back to activity as quickly as possible. Runners have high expectations because they know that they need to recover quickly if they want to prevent losing the fitness that has been hard earned through training. This creates a complicated situation for the foot and ankle physician. During his lecture, Dr. Segler shared his experience in treating injured elite athletes with conditions such as Achilles tendinosis, Achilles tendinitis, stress fractures, atypical heel pain, and sesamoid injuries. During his talk he offered his insights as well as recommendations for other foot and ankle specialists in order that they might be able to help their own patients across the country in their podiatry and sports medicine practices.
