Running works the muscles and stresses the joints. Inflammation is your body’s way of healing irritated or injured tissue, which is why you’re sore after running or working out.

Patients who are taking anticoagulants or have a history of GI issues should not take NSAIDs without discussing with their doctor first, as they do have the potential side effects of thinning the blood and irritating the stomach, among others.

Dr. Jameson is extremely personable, as are all of the nurses and front office staff that I’ve interacted with. I appreciate that Dr. Jameson seems to have a fairly conservative approach when it comes to surgery versus preventative care. During my visit, she was very focused on what we could do to prevent my feet […]
