FASMA Podiatrist Featured in Frederick Steeplechasers Newsletter

Published Friday July 24, 2015

Dr. David J. Levine (Frederick Division) was featured in the June 2015 edition of the Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club Newsletter.  Dr. Levine, also a member of the Frederick Steeplechasers Running Club, explained how he began running and his early experiences in high school and college training.  His lifelong passion for running eventually motivated him to open his own practice in the late 1980’s, followed by the opening of a footwear store (now New Balance – Frederick).  Dr. Levine also discussed the new innovative Alter G technology he uses in his practice to keep injured athletes active and running.

“The ability to put one foot in front of the other is such a seemingly simple act that many of us take for granted until an injury strikes. Unfortunately, the only time you really understand this is when you can’t put your shoes on and go out the door. Through my practice, shoe store, and now Frederick antigravity running, there are many ways to keep you pounding the pavement and doing what you enjoy.”
