Posted by Dr. Brian Nagy on April 26, 2018

If you’re a runner you know the joy of fresh air in your face and feeling the strength of your body with every stride. Then just as you’re feeling the stress of the day finally fade away you notice that twinge in your knee again. It doesn’t quite, hurt but you can feel a strange sensation and the next morning when you get out of bed your knee is a little tender and stiff. It’s all part of being a runner, right?

Custom Orthotics vs. Over the Counter Shoe Inserts: Which Are Best?

Posted by Dr. Brian Nagy on September 5, 2017
