Today on the Doc On the Run Podcast were talking about how runners can get the very best second opinion.
The other day I had an interesting conversation with a runner who has had a really difficult time recovering. The bottom line is that she had a couple of surgeries that didn’t work out exactly the way she expected and now she is still having trouble.
So we were having a conversation about how she can make sure that her current treatment plan is the best plan to get her back to running. We talked about all different kinds of surgical options, different approaches and how the doctor’s decision making process works. And through the course of that conversation I realized that many runners just don’t understand how they should approach a doctor when they’re getting a second opinion.
Your goal when you are getting a second opinion is to make sure you are getting an unbiased perspective on where you are right now and where you want to end up.
