The most common problems Reingold sees in his practice are ankle and heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis, ingrown toenails, bunions or hammer toes, and overuse injuries among athletes. He also treats people with foot problems related to diabetes.
Determining the right shoe may not be easy as it sounds, said Jack Reingold, D.P.M., of Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas and the Coast Podiatry Group of Solana Beach. … He blames shoe confusion in part on the marketing hype about the latest and greatest shoe.
The Active Foot Store can also make you a custom pair of Birkenstocks. The expert staff, led by Solana Beach podiatrist Dr. Jack A. Reingold, will take a mold of your foot and produce a sandal that looks exactly like a regular Birkenstock except that its foot bed, size, shape and arch exactly match your foot.
Dr. Jack Reingold can honestly say he’s wanted to be a podiatrist since he was 5 years old. Reingold, who has led Coast Podiatry Group in Solana Beach since 1989, was influenced and inspired by a friend of the family who was a podiatrist and well respected in his community in upstate New York.
Pain in the heel or arch is the most common reason we see patients; it is estimated that 15 percent of all new patients have this complaint. Such pain can often be traced to inflammation on the bottom of the foot, a condition known as plantar fasciitis or heel spur syndrome.
Dr. Jack Reingold is a podiatrist. He’s also the owner of the Active Foot Store in UTC (858-453-5057). “We’re often born with less-than-ideal body function,” said Reingold, “and over a lifetime, we put great demands on our bodies. People may have certain postures or foot shapes that aren’t ideal for certain activities, ranging from shopping to standing at work to running a marathon. So when our bodies don’t cooperate with our desires for function, we need to function better.”
