Julie J. Testimonial

"In May 2012, I hiked the Grand Canyon from rim to river to rim in one day.  The hike was 5,000 feet of vertical drop and gain and approximately 20 miles in length.  In June of that year I developed Patellar Tendonitis.  I am an avid runner as well as participate in many other activities, including Pilates and Boot Camp classes.  Paul had been seeing me struggle in each of the classes.  He convinced me to let him work on my knee with some targeted massage therapy.  To my surprise, he was able to reduce the pain and greatly improve my ability to compete in races and other events.

 

Fast forward to March 2014.  I am still dealing with Patellar Tendonitis because I refuse to sit down and rest for several months; that’s just not my personality.  After a couple MRIs, my doctor sent me to physical therapy.  The PT exercises were targeted at strengthening my quadriceps and hamstring muscles to put less strain on the knee area.  During the PT therapy, I pulled my hamstring muscle in May 2014.  I got to the point where I was completely unable to run; walking was even painful.  The PT people were not interested in the hamstring, their focus was the knee.  I was released from PT, disappointed and upset.  I turned to Paul once again to see if he could help.  It took several sessions over a few months, but I am back running.  Over the course of treatment he  tried several different techniques, concentrating on the ones that worked the best.  He also gave me exercises to do at home.  Honestly, at one point I thought I wasn’t going to be able to run again.  I am beyond thrilled with the results.  I can’t thank Paul enough."
