“Running has been a part of my life since I was 4 years old and now I run collegiately at Penn where I am a senior. Going into my junior year XC season I started feeling pain in my heel which quickly manifested into severe plantar fasciitis. I tried every method possible with no success. I had to take completely off of running from May 2018-October 2018, which caused me to miss my senior cross season. My high school coach recommended I go see Dr. Rob and I was skeptical at first since nothing I was doing seemed to be doing the trick. I am so incredibly grateful for Dr. Rob. In a time where I was feeling down in the dumps and unsure about my running future, he inspired me by keeping a positive mindset and giving me hope, which he says stands for: hundreds of possibilities exist. I did multiple rounds of shockwave throughout 6-8 weeks and finally am able to run majority pain-free after 18 long months. In fact, I am racing for the first time since last April this Saturday. Dr. Rob is intelligent, talented, friendly, and so generous. He worked around my college schedule to make sure I could get in and heal my heel. I wouldn’t be running right now if it wasn’t for him or shockwave therapy, which is painful but worth it!!”
