Physical Therapy [Leg Pain]

"My husband (Brett Hungerford, owner of Element Cycles) stresses the importance of bike fit for riders, so we both knew the importance of having a video run analysis done with Eric at Beyond Exercise as I decided to train for my first half marathon.  I was not a runner previously and had decided to train with Studio S.  I met with Eric prior to even starting the training group. I went in knowing nothing about running and left armed with knowledge about my own untrained/natural techniques and how to alter them to hopefully avoid injury and run efficiently.  Eric is great at explaining things in a way even a novice runner can grasp and demonstrating what needs to be done.

Physical Therapy [Hip Pain]

"In 2011, I was sidelined for almost 8 months because of hip pain.  I had two MRIs, saw 4 orthopedics and was put in physical therapy for 8 weeks.  Nothing helped, the pain got worse and I was still struggling to walk, let alone run.  A friend recommended I go see Eric to see if he could help.  I went in to see Eric, thinking I would never run again.  After a 90 minute exam, he was able to diagnose my problem and start me on my road to recovery.  I walked out of his office after the first visit feeling 90% pain free.

Physical Therapy [Pelvic Stress Fracture]

"In the summer of 2012, I suffered a pelvic stress fracture while training for my 5th marathon.  After the fracture healed, I was still having chronic adductor pain.  After nearly a year of not having any luck with numerous doctors, 5 different physical therapists, aqua therapy and massage therapy, I was on the brink of giving up. I heard about Beyond Exercise and decided to give it a try as my “last shot.”  On my first visit, Eric spent a great deal of time assessing my injury and listening to my concerns and everything I had tried in the past.  I immediately felt like I had finally found the place that could help me.

Physical Therapy [Tibial Stress Fracture]

"Before I started training for the Boston Marathon, I was rehabbing a stress fracture on my right tibia.  My doctor told me I had to limit my running for at least four weeks, which meant I wouldn't be able to start training until February; leaving me a little over 2 months to get ready for one of my biggest races.  Eric immediately took action and created a plan that helped me maintain and improve my fitness level.

Physical Therapy [Hip Pain]

"After running marathons for a few years, I developed a pelvis fracture that caused a lot of pain and limited my ability to run and cross-train. I was sidelined for 3 months to let the fracture heal, but I continued to have significant pain as I tried to return to fitness. In the course of a year, I had numerous visits with 3 different sports medicine physicians, physical therapy, massage, chiropractic adjustments, MRIs, and several steroid injections to no avail. It was very frustrating to be told that nothing was wrong, despite having active pain and limitations in even easy runs.
