Hey you - I’m Colin AKA, Dr. Colin, the foot guy. 

or, for some reason I still can’t understand, my daughter calls me stinky ponco

I’m a husband, father, foot specialist of 20 years, author, researcher and opinionated out the wazoo. 

I help people get back on their feet.  From bad ass Olympians, to octogenarians with arthritis, with the help my amazing team of foot pros, we're the ones that get them better. Bold, you bet.


How you ask?  We figure out your puzzle.  I work in the world of shoes, orthotics, rehab, and range (doesn’t that sound exciting?!).  My special ninja skill is find out the things you need, and be your passionate advocate to get them.

Looking for one size catch alls, turn away. You won’t find any “Pronation is all in your hips or everyone needs orthotics” nonsense here. What you will find is a reasoned, holistic, middle ground approach, to your individual situation.

What do readers have to say?

As a collegiate level athlete performing a high impact sport - pole vault - general physical health can be challenging to maintain.  Though I have a high arch, I was fortune to retain good foot health until a significant injury to my big toe joint in my third year of competing.  The result was devastating to my performance and after several trips to a physician, it was suggested that I see someone that specializes in foot mechanics for rehab.  I was beyond fortunate that the referral went to Dr. Dombroski who evaluated my specific problem and suggested custom made foot orthotics to correct some mechanical/structural changes that resulted from my injury.  The process was professional, specific and most importantly, successful - I was able to continue my sport through the rest of my University career.  At a recent visit, I inquired about options to supplement the orthotics with exercises and I was given an advanced copy of this book.  After starting just a few of the exercises mentioned, the changes to not only my foot health but also my hip and back have been nothing short of profound.  In my specific case, the exercises have allowed me to forgo the need for orthotics entirely, improved my performance in the gym for exercises like deadlifts and in general, sincerely changed my life.  This book fills a rehabilitation gap that has been present for far too long and proves, at least to me, that foot health can dictate general health in remarkable ways.  I sincerely feel that this book can benefit anyone and everyone, regardless of whether you are struggling with chronic pain or simply want to take better care of your feet.  Thank you Colin!
