DR. GREGORY STILWELL, DPM
Pole Walking Classes and Podiatric Consultation
After practicing podiatric foot and ankle surgery for nearly 30 years, Dr. Greg Stilwell was diagnosed with the most common form of inherited peripheral neuropathies (Charcot-Marie-Tooth); his balance is affected as well as hand and foot strength. Now, Dr. Greg is on a mission to teach Pilates Pole Walking-to help others with balance and walking issues.
Having found Pilates, Gyrotonic®, as well as nordic pole walking to help his own body, Dr. Greg's coaching combines his knowledge of walking and leg/foot function with innovative ways to use Balance Walking® poles-creating a highly effective system to rehab after neurological challenges, spine difficulties, as well as most leg and foot conditions. He has pole walking certifications from 3 different certifying bodies.
Dr. Stilwell continues to lecture on foot & ankle topics in both English and Spanish. He has lectured in 7 different countries, is a published academic author, and patent holder for the first self adhesive foot orthotic-the Hozhoni Balance Rail® orthotic. Pilates Pole Walking involves a computerized gait analysis before and after your initial session, as well as individualized exercises for between sessions, as well as consultation on shoes, socks and Correct Toes® to help you gain confidence and strength- and learn to walk better sooner.
