Simply put, Wendy is the best Physical Therapist I have ever worked with! She is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! A runner and athlete herself, she tailors each PT session, taking into account the present state of the body (injuries, weaknesses), while helping patients focus on short-term and long-term rehabilitation and training goals. Post-recovery, Wendy helps patients design practical plans for improving form and preventing future injuries. When working Wendy, it's never just about spot-treating an injury. Her approach is holistic with an eye to maintaining optimal function and health for life. When I experienced a quadricep strain 5 weeks into a 16-week marathon training plan, I was scared that my distance and pace goals would be derailed by the injury. After providing an accurate assessment of the injury and recommending a week of full rest, Wendy devised a stretching and strengthening routine to promote healing and compliment my running routine. She also helped me implement a tactical plan to safely ramp back up to high mileage, get back to hill work, and increase my training intensity with pace and interval workouts. As I begin my taper, the apprehension I felt about the injury has disappeared. Three weeks out, I am feeling focused, confident, and prepared for this race. Through this whole process, Wendy has taught me so much about my body and how it works. Undoubtedly, the knowledge I have gained from working with Wendy through this training cycle will benefit me for years to come.
