Dr. Tyson Green Named Clinical Coordinator for Special Olympics
Foot and ankle specialist Dr. Tyson Green with Center for Orthopaedics recently completed certification at the Special Olympics Training Center in Boston, enabling him to serve as a Clinical Coordinator for games in our region.
He will be supervising the organization’s Fit Feet program, a free podiatric screening for Special Olympics athletes. Many of these athletes suffer from foot and ankle pain or deformities that impair their performance, and they are not always fitted with the best shoes and socks for their particular sport. They are provided with community referrals as needed and athletes, coaches and families are educated on choosing the proper shoes and socks.
Fit Feet is conducted in partnership with the International Federation of Podiatrists (FIP) and the American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine. Dr. Green will be organizing a team of volunteers to travel with him to Special Olympic events both in Louisiana and across the country
