Cobi is a nationally ranked triathlete and co-owner of iRun. He was also #1 in the world in his age group for triathlon. A chronic, debilitating achilles tendonitis kept him from training and performing at his true capacity. This gifted athlete came to my office ready to stop running, ready to have surgery and ready to give up his dream. Fortunately, a successful platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) injection, and rigorous adherence to a recovery protocol, brought him back to racing, and to winning. Here are his words…
On Saturday, February 29th, 2020, I was lucky enough to participate alongside 6,000 others in an incredible event in support of cancer survivors and cancer fighters everywhere. The 2020 Dolphin Cancer Challenge, hosted by the UM Sylvester Cancer Center, the Miami Dolphins and thousands of others across South Florida, was an event that I will never forget. Thousands grouped on bicycles and on foot to ride, run or walk, up to distances of 100 miles, in support of the fight against cancer.
Achilles or heel pain with running can be very debilitating to the impact athlete. Transitioning to a forefoot or midfoot strike with running can allow for continued running while simultaneously rehabilitating injured tissues.

This patient suffered a calcaneus, or heel bone fracture. He was unable to bear weight on the foot for 8 weeks. This is significantly limiting as use of crutches or a walker make it nearly impossible to mobilize in a home or office setting. Use of these aides also occupies the hands – so preparing meals or accomplishing tasks becomes arduous.
I have been spraining my ankles since childhood. As I aged I was on crutches at least once a year because of my ankles. When I got into my 40’s, I felt I was constantly walking on a sprained ankle. When I lived in New Mexico, I saw a specialist and they made leg braces for me which I wore for many years.
