Modern life is filled and affected by technology and we are constantly being bombarded by data. From the budgeting app telling us our saving rate to our car letting us know we have a flat, these things are supposed to make our life easy. However, there are also many...
Part 2 Last post we saw that research has not proven barefoot running to be better in general than running with shoes. If you are used to a particular running style and it is working for you it is questionable how worthwhile a change would be. However, research does...
Part 1 You may have heard the claim that barefoot running is more natural as it promotes a front-foot strike (FFS) pattern. The idea is that shoes are a modern invention that interfere with the normal foot-strike pattern and mechanics. Is it true? With respect to the...

Andrew is an extremely valuable asset to our community thanks to his passion for not only his patients, but for staying on top of current research and techniques. I have seen him numerous times and the care I have received is second to none. Andrew is also actively involved in our local athletic community offering injury prevention advice and training tips, and you can often see him volunteering his time at athletic events. Highly recommend.
I had a knee injury that was about 2 years old by the time I saw Andrew. A combination of hoping it would get better on it's own and just not taking the time to get something done about (it was more annoying rather than debilitating) resulted in me putting off addressing it. I was impressed with Andrew's assessment skills and his ability to explain the different compensations I had developed as a result of my injured knee. The exercises were challenging but doable and I really appreciated the videos he supplied so that I could check my form. He...read more also offered to let me send him videos of me doing the exercises so that he could assess my form if I had questions.The most positive aspect of my appointments with Andrew was how encouraging he was. I had all but stopped exercising for fear of aggravating the injury and, therefore, progressing to debilitating. Andrew has been very supportive of me returning to walking and even encouraging running if I wanted to do so. As I have started adding some running to my cardio, he has given very useful pointers on improving my form and speed in order to prevent injuries.I will definitely seek out Andrew again in the future!read less
Dr. Walker, an incredibly knowledgeable and understanding physical therapist, has set the bar high when it comes to my expectations of the quality of medical care. He puts forth the effort to stay sharp by reading all of the current research publication material, and he has many quality connections for other medical services. His business model is very economical as you seem him once every month or two and are trusted to perform the exercises at home, although he is always available for advice over email. Further, he is listens attentively to your problems and does not come across as...read more condescending - even if you make errors in following his advice. He works to get the abnormality under control and then push it to strengthen as much as possible without flaring up it to eventually handle normal activities. I had a nagging hip pain, which he identified as a compressive hamstring tendonopathy from cycling and sitting for long hours on hard lecture hall seats. He addressed the problem by having my sit off of the tendon and on a cushion as much as possible and then progress to strengthening. We overcame the problem in about 2 months. I have also been seeing him about a shoulder injury, which has progressed rather non linearly for about 8 months now. This timeline hasn't been very ideal for me returning to exercise, but I am confident it is in good hands for recovery and will keep the review updated accordingly.read less
