"With a keen interest in sports, orthopedics and sports medicine was the natural choice for me as a career. Having started my medical practice in Eugene in 1979, I was fortunate to practice with Don Slocum, who many consider to be one of the founding fathers of sports medicine. Being associated with the orthopedic group he founded and now being a part of the creation of the Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, I'm confident that the new facility will provide an environment of personal commitment to the care and education of patients."

Dr. Donald C. Jones Says . . .
If an athlete begins to develop pain with running, ask him or her the following questions:
1. Have you recently increased your training mileage?
2. Have you made a recent change in footwear?
3. Have you recently changed your running surface?
4. Do you do systematic stretching or yoga?
5. Do you consume sufficient water with increased training, racing, and weather conditions?
