As a competitive runner and triathlete, I thought I would not be able to race after I was diagnosed with a herniated disc in my low back. After working with Kjersten at TherExcel, I not only finished my 1/2 marathon without difficulty, but everyone commented on how much my running had improved. I even beat my fastest time! Kjersten not only “pulled me out of the water”, but she was also able to determine “why I fell in”, then taught me how to prevent future injuries. After a thorough running evaluation, manual therapy, and performing the right exercises for my diagnosis, I am now able to compete at my fullest potential! I just completed my best sprint Triathlon in 1 hour and 25 minutes. I won for my age group!
