Komo Health Talk: Foot Wear in Sports – boot related problems in skaters/ and ski sports

EXPERT:
Rachel Kang, DPM
SPECIALTY:

Dr. Kang’s devotion to Foot and Ankle Sports Medicine is rooted in her own experience with competitive and professional figure skating as well as her own foot injury. As a skater, Dr. Kang competed for the Korean Junior National Team, and skated at international level events. When her family moved back to the U.S., she continued to compete at the regional, sectional and national level. She was the Junior National Figure Skating Collegiate Champion in 2004. Following college, she skated professionally with the Royal Caribbean International ® Cruise Lines. A foot injury prevented Dr. Kang from continuing her professional skating career, but the care provided by a Foot and Ankle Specialist sparked her interest in the world of podiatry. Dr. Kang can personally relate to the enthusiasm and frustrations of an injured elite athlete. Dr. Kang’s goals are centered on realistic treatment plans for athletes, return to sport, and a lifetime of competition.
