      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Recommended Posts

I have two - unrelated - problems with my feet and I'm looking for a podiatrist and a sports orthopedic who understands our activity. Any referrals for such here in Seattle?

Dr. Eric Heit at VA Mason. https://www.virginiamason.org/body.cfm?id=1175&action=detail&ref=217 He is an orthopedic Podiatrist specializing in sports related injuries. As a general rule I hate doctors and can sniff out a bad one quickly (hint, they are almost all bad). Eric is very good, and very specialized, and uderstands sports related injuries and how to get us back on our feet again. Best line - "Well, it's not the worst sprain I've seen, but certainly the second worst." He also did several surgeries on both my wife's feet and achiles tendons with good results.

Orthopedic insoles are made specifically for a certain person in order to optimize the distribution of load in his body. Starting from the feet and on to all parts of the legs, pelvis and spine. Do you use orthopedic insoles? Where can I buy the good ones and suitable for me? Are there any shops you can recommend? And tell please what is the difference when you wore usual insoles and these ones?
