Our Practice Philosophy & Approach to Treating You
✓ We are dedicated to discovering the primary source of your foot and ankle condition. We understand the intricacies of foot and ankle biomechanics as they relate to the body as a whole. The foot and ankle are not in a vacuum – they are your structural foundation and affect the function of your body. Likewise, biomechanical problems above the foot and ankle can affect the function of your foundation. We apply this understanding to discovering and treating the source of dysfunction.
✓ Delivery of expert foot and ankle care
✓ Conservative (non-surgical) care is our primary method of treatment. As experts in conservative treatment, we believe most foot and ankle conditions can be healed without invasive treatments. You can heal yourself! We provide you with the knowledge, education, and opportunity to both heal your condition and to remain healed.
✓ For patients requiring surgical procedures, Dr. Groves offers Mastery level experience in foot and ankle surgical treatment.
✓ Continuity of care during and after treatment
✓ Ensuring continuity of care during treatment – throughout the recovery process we proactively modify your care to maximize healing. We are dedicated to minimizing your downtime through conscientiously adjusting the recovery process and preventing re-injury.
✓ Ensuring continuity of care after treatment – equally important to healing is the concept of remaining healed. During your recovery, our goal is to help you return to full and pain-free activity. We provide you with the knowledge, cues, and cures to adjust to future issues, get back to your life, and out of the doctor’s office!
