Kinesiology Tape in Pediatric Bunion Treatment

on 02 January 2018

Most recently, Dr. Thomas has given back to the podiatry community by writing a chapter on kinesiology tape for the "Podiatry Institute Update Book 2018". Specifically, the chapter contains details regarding kinesiology tape and the treatment for pediatrics with bunions. He continues to remain dedicated to education as well as impacting those around him. As the chapter mentions, there are a variety of ways to treat foot and ankle conditions. Treatments are discussed beginning with conservative measurements as well as surgical steps. Kinesiology tape is just one innovative approach that can be used to help overcome painful symptoms. Come by Triangle Foot and Ankle Specialist to see how Dr. Thomas can help your foot and ankle needs!

How To Keep Your Feet Healthy This Holiday Season

on 07 December 2016

You may be doing a lot of standing, walking, dancing or sitting in the same position throughout the holiday season. According to a survey conducted by the American Podiatric Medical Association, about half of all Americans have experienced foot pain. No one wants injuries or soreness to slow them down during the holiday season and keeping your feet healthy will carry you through all those seasonal activities. Some ways to keep your feet healthy include moisturizing, massaging, and exercising your feet, raising your legs if you have been sitting for a long period of time and wearing comfortable shoes.

Giving Back

on 27 April 2016

As a physician, Dr. Thomas is very committed to his community both geographic and professional.

As we have mentioned on our website, Dr. Thomas is dedicated to the education and progress of his colleagues in the field of podiatry. For this reason, he teaches Continuing Medical Education courses at the nationally renowned Podiatry Institute in Atlanta, GA. The Podiatry Institute is a non-profit educational foundation that offers a variety of programs including conferences, workshops and postgraduate courses that provide CME (Continuing Medical Education) credits for the physicians attending. The Institute has achieved national and international recognition for its leading role in developing and advancing podiatric medicine and surgery. By teaching these courses, without compensation, Dr. Thomas can share his vast knowledge of podiatric surgery with other podiatrists nationwide and help to further excellent care for patients.

Locally, Dr. Thomas is keenly aware of the need for contribution from practices to help in the community. Triangle Foot and Ankle Specialist sponsors events, such as their Silver Sponsorship for the Woods Charter School annual auction, in April and their Gold Sponsorship for the Green Hope Robotics Team fundraiser also in April. The practice sets aside funds each year for participation in local events to help the community.
