    Howdy!

    I've injured the ball of my foot and am always scared of stress fractures, so I want to get it checked out. I live in Dallas, a little West of Salem, and work in Salem - so a trek up into Portland is a pretty significant drive, taking me out of work for at least an afternoon.

    Is anybody here familiar with any barefoot-friendly podiatrists in the Salem area? I'm in the process of transitioning into minimalist/barefoot and suspect my injury is due to going too far too soon.

    Thanks!

    Rob,

    I'm a chiro on the westside of Portland. I can help find a bf friendly chiro around you a bit easier than a podiatrist. for that you'll have to search. yes, chiros learn . feet too

    I'd be open to trying that! I'm rob@axpr.net if you'd like to communicate via email.

    Rob,

    I emailed you and never got a reply. maybe it went to your junk mail?

    closest recommendation i received was Lake Oswego. I'm in Forest Grove if you feel like making the drive. I can always drive to you too but likely only on a Saturday and maybe on Friday.

    I see your email from September 15th now, but nothing more recent. I ended up going to my PCP and was cleared to start running again (I didn't mention anything barefoot) and am starting to build up the miles again. I'll keep you in mind if I end up in trouble again!

    Thanks!!

    Rob
