About

Bio

Since my fellowship in Primary Care Sports Medicine I have enjoyed being a partner in private practice, and then returning to academics as faculty with a State Medical School. In 2009 I returned to the Upstate of South Carolina to start a new practice with the St. Francis Bon Secours Medical Group. Our unique practice has a focus on the overall health of active individuals. We strive to keep active those that are already active, and encourage all others to become active. We treat most musculoskeletal injuries as well as the common illnesses that all active people might have. In addition, we stress the importance of prevention and wellness and performance evaluations as indicated or desired. Please call us if you have questions about the many services available in our clinic. Much of our time is also spent on the field or the court providing medical coverage for numerous sporting events around the area.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Have this evaluated: It is not normal for an otherwise healthy 20 year old to have a sustained heart rate of 120, especially with the symptoms of fatigue noted. This should be evaluated by a health care provider to check for a type of anemia, dehydration, or thyroid disorder to name a few possibilities that may require treatment.

Consider a break: Depending on the severity, if you really have plantar fasciitis, it might be best to take a break from high impact exercise while you continue low impact activity with stretching and possibly other treatments like night splints and formal physical therapy. In the long term , determining what caused your condition (training regimen, improper shoes, etc.) and avoiding that cause in the future.

Exercise burns fat: Exercise will burn fat but in general, no type of exercise can selectively burn fat from only specific areas like just from your abdomen or cheeks. Specific exercises may however tone up the muscles in a specific area, and this may cause that area to appear more fit.
