U.S. Army Warrior Care and TransitionArlington, VA – Sgt. 1st Class John Dvorak knows how to make lemonade out of life’s lemons. A once avid runner and a self-described gym rat, Dvorak found himself adjusting to a new normal after sustaining injuries during physical training.

Dvorak has a list of injuries to include two herniated discs that have caused nerve damage as well, neuropathy and nerve pain in his left leg and a drop foot. “My drop foot has slowed my pace down and caused my gait to be off,” Dvorak said. “With my gait off, it has caused me to be flat footed and now I have plantar fasciitis.”
