I am a very active person and I had increased my training load for an upcoming marathon. Unfortunately, I began having Achilles tendon pain and ankle pain with the increased load. By complete chance I met Dr. Joe Farris and he was able to identify the problem right away. I went to [Tangelo] in Green Lake and Dr. Joe worked on the pain points while I also received PT with Tyler. As a team they worked very well and I really began to improve. Things started easy, but they adjusted the difficulty such that by the end of 12 sessions I was struggling and the PT became intense! I truly felt like I was building muscles that were underdeveloped. I also have a new workout routine to keep developing these muscles to prevent recurrences.
My pains began to dissipate and I was surprised that never once did anyone tell me that I should stop training or scale back. I’ve had doctors tell me this before, but I feel that they simply don’t understand the mindset of someone who is seriously training for a goal. It’s nearly impossible to stop training! If my body is not completely broken… then I’m running. Fortunately Dr. Joe and Tyler were willing to do their best to ensure that I didn’t miss a step!
At the end of the treatment course I was ready to run the marathon and I set a new PR! Overall I’m very happy with the treatment I received and I would recommend the team without any reservations. I feel like they did a great job
