Patients in their own words ...

Goodbye, Mom

Moms: We all have one. At some point, they leave us. In my case, the end was bittersweet, knowing that she lived too long and would never have wanted her days to end in a nursing home. Can’t we do better than this?

Goodbye, Mom The Stone Clinic

Patients For Life

When you see a doctor, you have three choices: Ignore their advice and go somewhere else, trust them to solve your problem and move on, or engage with them as an advisor for life. Magic happens when doctor and patient bond forever.

Stress Fractures

Stress fractures happen to athletes at the worst of times. Usually, it is just when they’re increasing training, starting a new sport, or landing awkwardly from a jump. The bones of the feet and the shins are most at risk, but occasionally the hip or spine is injured. The knee is also exposed to such fractures, mostly during ligament ruptures and after meniscus removals. Here is the current thinking on what to do.

Once You Go Soft You are Never Going Back

Ski boots haven’t changed much in twenty years. Stiff and stiffer cuffs, rounded Italian-molded toe shapes, heavy polyurethane plastics with cold, hard buckles pretty much describes most of the downhill boots on the market. This is about to radically change. While not nearly radical as needed, boots over the last ten years have featured wider toe boxes and wider lasts. In many cases, the rear cuff heights have been lowered a bit to accommodate less tip pressure needed with tighter radius sidecut skis. 

Stress

We all experience it. Sometimes, we can use it to our advantage. But more often it is a disease, rotting our insides. Is there a treatment for stress? A vaccine or a cure? Let’s look at performance, relationships, and sleep. Each is affected by stress in a different way, and each has a variety of useful and useless responses.
