When my back and hip started hurting, I was scared that I would no longer be able to train the way that I wanted to. A couple of different doctors strongly suggested that I not lift anything over 45 pounds or so, which reinforced my fear. While part of me thought that perhaps this might be my new reality, I wasn’t ready to fully accept that I might have to forfeit my training. I’m excited to say that my treatment over the course of a few weeks has had me making steady progress in the right direction. Not only do I have pain relief, I have arrived at the point where I am now back in the gym and training with confidence!
I was having some hip pain for quite a while as I trained for the New Jersey Marathon. The ultimate goal was to re-qualify for the Boston Marathon next year after missing the qualifying time this year. I had seen another chiropractor who did some stretching for my hip muscle. It felt better right after but once I had to train again, the pain came right back. After going through the exam, Justin explained to me exactly why the ‘stretching’ was not helping. In fact, I needed ‘strengthening’ exercises rather than the stretching I had been doing. I incorporated the exercises into my daily routine and by Saturday, I was ready to run. I am happy to say I hit a PR in the NJ Marathon and re-qualified for the Boston Marathon!
