Dr. Eugene Shapiro draws on more than two decades of experience, along with degrees in podiatry and holistic health, to treat ailments above and below the ankle. Aside from run-of-the-mill maladies, such as athlete’s foot and seventh toe, the kindly foot mender specializes in tending to the pavement-pounding concerns of athletes, elderly folks, and those suffering from diabetes.
As a former research assistant, he’s constantly on the lookout for cutting-edge palliatives, including the use of radio frequencies to heal pinched nerves without resorting to painful surgery. He is also one of the few doctors to offer prolotherapy—an innovative method that aims to treats musculoskeletal pain by stimulating the repair of damaged ligaments and tendons.
