Subject: Atlanta area sports doc
Hello, been lurking around the site for awhile but haven't really participated. Need to change that.

Anyway, I've been training for a marathon lately and seem to have injured my soleus/achilles region where they both meet. I've been seeing a local chiropractic sports therapist but the injury doesn't seem to be getting any better. I've taken a break from running and biking at the moment trying to get the injury to heal to no avail. Have been lightly stretching etc.

Might actually require a visit to a doctor and just checking if anyone had any recommendations of a good one. Had a knee issue a year or so ago and wasn't impressed with the doc I had seen.

Thanks in advance.

You cannot go wrong with Dr. Sadri as he is well known in the endurance sports circles but an alternative is Mary Doyle at Fusion Physical Therapy. She is multi-IM finisher who has a passion for getting folks better.

When I got him by a car doing the warm-up for St. Anthony's triathlon in April which broke my collar bone and gained me a titanium rod, she got me back in to shape to complete Ironman Florida that November.

She is no nonsense, tough ... and good.

Her contact information is: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Fusion-Physical-Therapy-Inc/384049061...

Yvonne Satterwhite... board certified in both orthopedics and sports medicine.  She is thorough, understands the athlete and training mentality, and goes above and beyond for her patients.  I had a very difficult case that several other doctors and physical therapists brushed off as an overuse injury from cycling.  It turned out to be much more serious and, if not for her persistence, would have continued on indefinitely (or ended really badly).  I can not say enough good things about her.

Thanks for the replies. forgot about my thread. I had been going to Sadri prior to asking, just wasn't getting any better. I needed to let it rest more than anything and heal.


I've been taking it easy and stretching, foam rolling etc. It's still tight but once I get it loose it feels much better. Looking forward to trying some tris next year once I get fully healed up.

Recurrent injuries to the groin are slow to heal, easily re-injured, and will frustrate your training and competition plans. Learn about the diagnosis, anatomy and treatment of sports hernias.

I went into the pool area (as this was a pool swim) and got body marked. That's when it hit me that I was there to race - this was not a clinic.

The triathletes really inspired me. I watched them in awe as childlike thoughts went through my head like, "I want to do that!" But then reality set in. “Who are you kidding?

Could this be related to IT band problems or someone thought it might be bursitis and what should I do to treat it? Also, should I see a sports med doc or orthopedic specialist?
