Dr. Elliot Diamond has been a podiatrist for more than thirty years, blending complementary medicine strategies with podiatric concepts. His interest in Oriental Medicine, acupuncture and pain management were initially catalyzed as a graduate student at Penn State University.
“My initial interest in podiatry began in 1974 when I was a graduate student in the Department of Health and Physical Education. While I was working on my Master’s Thesis, a podiatric medicine academy hired me to research and publish a textbook on muscle testing and corrective medicine for the Lower Extremity titled: “A Podiatric Resource Guide for Preventative and Rehabilitative Foot and Leg Care”, Futura Publishing Company, 1976. Once this textbook was published, I decided to attend the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine (then named the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine).
My interest in acupuncture stemmed from my Master’s Thesis on Transcendental Medicine/Yoga and its relationship to psychological components and drug attitude and behavior. I achieved an Oriental Doctor Degree and have integrated acupuncture in my podiatry practice since 1983.”
Due to my extensive training in both the USA and Japan, my interest in pain and sports medicine has a universal approach. Non-surgical techniques for “hard to heal” podiatric conditions are emphasized in our practice, but when surgery is required, we’ll work with you to find the best option.
