Medical / Foot Care

John in Costa RicaJohn is a sought after medical staff person for many athletic events. His skills as a paramedic and orthopedic technician pale in comparison to his expertise as a foot care expert. Since writing Fixing Your Feet: Prevention and Treatments for Athletes, the 'bible' of foot care, he has earned the reputation as a foot care expert. He often works these events, patching feet, leading foot care clinics, and teaching doctors, podiatrist's, nurses, paramedic's, EMTs, and racers and their crews how to manage foot care in extreme events. In the picture above, from the Coastal Challenge in Costa Rica (2006), John is at the base of the background palm tree.
