An avid runner reaching for the next level in marathons and Iron Man competitions, Robynne began experiencing calf injuries and overuse conditions associated with such athletes.
A primary care sports medicine specialist and fellow runner, Dr. Scott Rand understood how to not only treat what Robynne was experiencing but also relate to the rapid return to sports every athlete feels. Together they worked through each challenge - some as simple as knowing that periodic pain during a training session was okay to play through.
Now with her children becoming more involved in competitions, she knows they're likely to experience injuries and conditions related to their activity but content that the entire family can come to Dr. Rand and the primary care sports medicine team at Houston Methodist Willowbrook to keep doing what they love.
"When I qualified for the Boston marathon, I called Dr. Rand and said WE did it. WE did it."
