I was experiencing calf pain, likely from over-training that prevented me from running after a few miles.
The therapy & treatments targeted the specific areas that were in pain. The sharp pain eased right after the dry needling and was replaced by a little muscle soreness/ tightness that wore off after several days of active recovery runs.
I had 2 weeks before the USATF 100k championship and had to walk home from a training run. After Verrelle’s treatment I was able to run normally after a few days and compete in the race without pain. I don’t think I would have finished the race (let alone win) without his help.
I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone (athlete or not). Being able to get back to doing what you enjoy pain-free and quickly is priceless.
