Welcome to Rocky Mountain Foot and Ankle’s blog! We hope that this serves to help our patients and potential patients make decisions about their health. I will be publishing at least one update per month on topics related to the foot and ankle and hope to get your feedback! Think of this as a way to interact with your doctor without having to see your doctor! Think of this as a forum to discuss topics of health and fitness or specific problems with the feet! I will do my best to entertain and enlighten, so keep those questions coming.
