#FitnessFriday time! Thanks to Sabrina for allowing us to share this on social media. She is a 27-year-old ultra marathon runner who was experiencing left calf and Achilles pain which started 6 months ago when she tore her calf muscle. After trying to do several more races and finally unable to finish a 100-mile race with a 16,000 feet elevation (ending at about 52) she decided it was time to seek PT. During the first 2 visits, we worked on manual therapy techniques, pain management and education, and giving simple running drills to work on. On her third visit, we decided to do a treadmill running evaluation (Mark Jamantoc, PT here talking in the video). We are very proud she’s able to start training with running again and we look forward to progressing you more. Disclaimer: This video highlights a simple analysis we do on running evaluations and is just a part of a whole evaluation process during a physical therapy appointment. This is not meant to cover everything. . . . . #performancephysicaltherapy #getPT1st #solvePT #Bellingham #PNW #health #fitness ... See more
