Gary Rumel, physiologist and founder of Fitworks Corrective Therapy, believes that the key to good health isn't found only in traditional Western medicine but also in caring for the body and frame by correcting musculoskeletal imbalances. In 2000, Gary pioneered a method that works to do just that—he helps patients to identify, build, and stretch specific muscle groups through custom exercises and stretches, allowing their joints to align and their posture to improve. Employing this method, he's removed 47 people from surgery waiting lists for conditions such as scoliosis and lordosis and has developed The Decompression Band, which relieves the pain associated with bulging discs.
With experienced podiatric doctors at the helm, Foot and Ankle Specialists of Utah's purview covers a wide range of foot complaints. The physicians completed their residencies in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, laying a firm foundation beneath their independent areas of expertise and their giant-foot-shaped homes. Dr. Ryan Anderson uses his sports medicine and chronic foot-pain expertise to treat plantar fasciitis, sprains, and shin splints while Dr. Bryan Seagle specializes in the foot conditions that commonly arise in diabetic patients, treating foot ulcers and Charcot foot with custom-molded orthotics. Dr. Jason Campbell and Dr. Colby Frost, meanwhile, specialize in pediatric treatment.
Podiatrist and surgeon Dr. Jason Dickerson has been easing the ailments that hide inside Utah residents' socks for more than 10 years. At the Foot & Ankle Institute he treats everything from sprains and strains to gout, infections, and retractable toenails. Simple routine checkups make sure all is well in the lower appendages, and custom orthotics relieve pain and correct alignment issues.
