Foot Injury/Condition

Foot Injury/Condition

Sherrill Sawyer

I’ve had rheumatoid arthritis for 15 years along with fibromyalgia and osteoporosis. Over time, the combination of these three conditions made my feet turn and twist. It got so bad I couldn’t even wear shoes, instead wearing Crocs most of the time. For years, I felt like I was walking on rocks and oftentimes my pain level was a 10 out of 10.

Catherine Myrick

My daughter, Catherine, has played competitive soccer for many years, so being active is a very big part of her life. One day Catherine was in the front yard playing with her siblings when she injured her foot.

I took Catherine to our pediatrician and she ordered x-rays. Our pediatrician said they couldn’t see anything broken and sent her home with the diagnosis of a bad sprain. We treated it like a sprain and put a brace on her foot.

For some time, I had trouble with pain in my left foot under my toes when I would walk. I have been to doctors in Decatur where I live and had inserts for my shoes made and that didn't work.

I saw another orthopedist and a podiatrist and no help with those two. My foster dad told me about Dr. Waldrop and how he helped him. So, I decided to try one more time for help and God had bless me with a angel. :-)

Sam Hudson

My name is Sam Hudson, I’m 18 years-old and will be graduating from Montgomery Academy in the spring of 2017. I grew up playing a variety of sports, including football, which I started playing when I was 5 years-old.  Fortunately, God blessed me with a large, athletic frame. I stand 6’ 4”, could run a 4.7, was a solid receiver with dreams of playing college football.

I have had a passion for football since I could walk. It has been something that I love and enjoy doing. I've played just about every sport you can think of, but football stuck with me. I started playing when I was just 4 years old, and I've played ever since. 

My biggest fear was getting hurt in anyway. I didn't want anything to come between me and my first love. My freshman year in high school was the first time I had ever been injured. I fractured my L5-S1 in the lower portion of my back. Even though that was pretty bad, the worst was yet to come.
