Therapies for Runners and Triathletes
Why consider therapies for Runners and Triathletes?
Endurance athletes, especially runners, know the effects of gravity better than most. Whether you’re racing at the track, a Marathon, Triathlon or running for fitness, every strike of the foot to the pavement sends awesome amounts of force into the body. Just about everyone has experienced the negative effects this can have on calves, shins, hips, hamstrings, back, etc. But, runners aren’t the only endurance athletes to experience pain.
The hours in the saddle, required by cyclists in training, can have adverse effects on the body as well. Overtime, the seated position required can cause tightening of the hip flexors which can lead to back issues. The forward head position can also cause unnatural tightening in the back of the neck and upper shoulders.
While swimming is looked upon as a safe and low impact sport, repeated laps can affect the shoulders, hips and backs of some athletes. The proper swimming technique takes the arm and shoulder through a range of motion that can expose problems and cause impingement in some shoulder types.
When body alignment is maintained, forces and movement will distribute evenly throughout the entire body. If imbalances are not prevented or maintained properly, forces will localize and cause trauma in the connective tissues. (muscle, fascia, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone) Pain and tightness signal imbalance.

Todd has an ability to identify and work out small problems before they become big problems. Regular treatments are as important to my training and injury prevention as any exercises I do at the gym or track. I’d recommend Todd to any athlete who wants to train consistently and without pain.ERIN DONOHUE
I’ve pushed my body to its limits with nearly 20 years in the NHL. Todd helped me by working on some tight, over-trained muscles. Todd’s deep muscle and fascia work also helped get me through some tough pre-season training. I would recommend Todd to family, friends and team mates.IAN LAPERRIÈRE
I have been battling a shoulder injury for almost two years. My training in the sport of fitness was suffering and I was mentally feeling very defeated. After trying just about everything, I was referred by a friend to see Todd. After only two visits my shoulder no longer was an issue in training. My only regret about visiting Todd is that I did not find him sooner. I would recommend him to anyone looking to fix an occurring problem or hoping to prevent one in the future. Todd has played a huge role in my success as a Crossfit athlete.KELLY BAKER
I was shocked at the immediate relief I hadn’t had in years! From back injuries, to hips, shoulders and more, Todd has yet to let me down and has treated each with the same great results consistently. I feel like a “new” person when I walk out of his office! My muscles, joints and tendons are ready for some more action on the mat!BRAD DADDIS
