    The Sports Doctor

    Born and raised in New York, I've practiced podiatry and sports medicine for over 30 years in the Aurora- Naperville area (almost BUT NOT QUITE LONG ENOUGH to lose my NY accent ). You can check that out for yourselves by listening to Sports Doctor Radio, on http://www.healthylife.net/ Join me live Wednesday's, 3-4 pm. CST. The Sports Doctor was formerly on WDCB 90.9 FM in Chicago for more than 20 years. The Sports Doctor is also read in newspaper columns including The Aurora Beacon News and the Naperville Sun. Also please visit and 'like' my Facebook page, "Sports Doctor Radio" to keep in touch! You can also go to sportsdoctorradio.com to hear many past shows & read many articles under the heading The Sports Doctor. My specialty in sports medicine is orthotic therapy, combined with specific training and strengthening of the feet & ankles. I've been fortunate enough to have worked with some of the best athletes in all sports including many of the Super Bowl Bears back in the 80's, tennis greats John McEnroe and Tracy Austin, and numerous Cubs and White Sox. A true highlight of my career was watching Naperville's hometown figure skater Evan Lysacek, who I first saw as a nine-year-old and put orthotics in his skates, win the 2010 Olympic Gold Medal for men's figure skating with his orthotics (updated of course!) still in his boots. These high performance youngsters still remain my passion. Another big interest of mine is the challenge of our countries greatest epidemic: childhood obesity. I've been co-hosting "Kids Beating Obesity," a podcast produced by WDCB co-hosted by Rick Osbourne, author & creator of Pull Your Own Weight, an innovative simple method for kids to "immunize themselves against obesity for life." You can access the podcast by going to wdcb.org, click new media, click kids beating obesity.
