Dr. Kevin Vincent, is a sports medicine physician as well as medical director at the UF Health Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Institute. He is also the director of the UF Running Medicine Clinic and the Medical Director of the UF Sports Performance Center, which uses research and exercise studies to help patients discover the root of their injury, like LaVonne.
After completing some X-rays it was discovered LaVonne had a basicervical stress fracture on her femoral neck (top part of femur), which caused her training to abruptly stop. After a month of physical therapy, she was able to begin training again. Dr. Vincent and his team were able to complete a 3D running analysis of LaVonne’s gait to discover the root of the problem and help correct her form to allow her to become the best athlete she can be, free of pain.
