DR. MELISSA VERDE, A FLORIDA PODIATRIST BASED IN LONGWOOD HAS BEEN TREATING ATHLETE STEVE AGRONICK WHO HAD BEEN TOLD BY HIS MEDICAL DOCTOR THAT HE WAS DONE WITH COMPETETIVE BICYCLING OR ANY KIND OF CYCLING.  HE HAD BEEN TOLD "YOU'RE GOING TO WALK WITH A LIMP AND YOU'LL NEED ALL KINDS OF CONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY," THE VILLAGE OF WINIFRED RESIDENT, AGRONICK SAID, " NO, I CAN'T ACCEPT THAT."  HE ALSO FOUND A DOCTOR WHO DIDN'T THINK HE NEEDED SURGERY.

PODIATRIST VERDE STATES "SHE FIRST SAW HIM IN 2011.  HE HAD BEEN HAVING PROBLEMS WITH HIS ACHILLES TENDON AND NERVE IMPINGEMENT.  INSTEAD OF SURGERY, WE USED STRETCHING, ICE, INJECTIONS, PHYSICAL THERAPY, AND ELECTRICAL STIMULATION.  I TRIED TO PULL OUT EVERYTHING THAT I HAD TO GET HIM TO HEAL AND GET BACK TO HIS SPORT."

PODIATRIST VERDE'S PROGRAM WORKED BUT SHE CREDITS AGRONICK WITH ITS ULTIMATE SUCCESS.  "I ALWAYS THOUGHT IT WAS POSSIBLE HE'D GET BETTER, BUT TO MAKE IT ALL THE WAY BACK TO WHERE HE COMPETES --- I WASN'T SURE," SHE SAID.  "BUT HE WAS SO MOTIVATED.  IT'S GREAT WHEN YOU HAVE A PATIENT LIKE THAT.  IT MOTIVATED ME."  THAT WAS 2 YEARS AGO.  TODAY THE 71 YEAR OLD IS FULLY RECOVERED FROM A TORN ACHILLES TENDON AND IS BACK AMONG THE ELITE CYCLISTS IN THE UNITED STATES.  HIS MOST RECENT TRIUMPH  CAME LAST MONTH IN THE FLORIDA STATE ROAD RACE CHAMPIONSHIPS IN CLERMONT, WHERE HE WON THE GOLD MEDAL IN THE MENS MASTER 70 - 75 DIVISION.
