Practice Overview

Paul R. Langer, DPM, is a board certified podiatrist who specializes in sports medicine, foot disorders, biomechanics, surgery and diabetic foot care for healthy aging. He utilizes the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies which include; musculoskeletal ultrasound, computerized gait analysis and foot pressure analysis for in-depth biomechanical assessments, as well as Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy, 3D printed foot orthotics and minimally invasive surgical techniques for treatment of injuries. He has lectured at and served on the medical staff of international athletic events including the Boston Marathon and China’s Gobi March. He is a clinical advisor for the American Running Association, and an associate of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. He is the author of Great Feet for Life: Footcare and Footwear for Healthy Aging and has contributed to three other medical texts and published several articles. 

While his initial interest in medicine was sparked by his passion for running and endurance sports, he became inspired by the active lives that many of his patients over age 40 were living. Because he received so many questions about footcare and footwear, he set out to find a good resource to guide his patients on self care, only to find that there wasn’t a resource specifically written for caring for the feet as we age. With that, Dr. Langer spent 2 years researching and writing Great Feet For Life.

"Our feet provide the foundation for a healthy and active life. Most foot conditions can be treated very effectively."
