"I wish I had gone to CHARM first.
I'd have saved myself a lot of
frustration, time, and money."
I am a competitive cyclist and triathlete. By the time I came to CHARM, I had pretty much given up on running, and even cycling caused me pain. I had struggled with hamstring tendinopathy for three years. I had tried physical therapy, chiropractic, Graston technique, ART, prolotherapy and dry needling. I had even done a few PRP sessions with another provider in Austin. The PRP sessions enabled me to ride without too much pain, but long rides and hard rides still hurt; and running was out the question.
In February of 2016, I had a stem cell therapy from Dr. Ben Rawson. I followed up the stem cell treatment with physical therapy with Michele Harris using the Redcord Neurac Method. Within two weeks, I was feeling better. After a month, I could ride long and do hard group rides without pain. I eventually started running again, and I'm back doing triathlons again. I'm up to running 14 miles without pain! The physical therapy sessions help me to treat the many muscle imbalances I had developed from years of training with my injury.
"I feel stronger and got significant results in a short period of time. The Neurac Method was phenomenal."
Dana was training for her 5th Boston Marathon when she exerienced significant tighntness in her back, ribcage, and abdominal muscles, which lingered for weeks following a viral infection and severe coughing. She tried numerous therapies but the pain would not go away, and Dana could no longer run like she needed to in order to train. She was referred to CHARM by friends and shares her Neurac experience:
"The Redcord Neurac Method is very different from other types of PT that I have tried. Each exercise is done suspended in slings while the therapist constantly cues and teaches you how to engage correctly. It's full body integration!
What I liked most is how fast and effective this method really is. I always thought I had a strong core, but it surprised me how little I actually use my inner core muscles. The Neurac Method has helped me connect with and engage the stabilizer muscles that are vital to the sport of running.
Now, I'm not overusing muscles that I have in the past. I finished my 5th Boston marathon on April 17th!"
