Chiropractor treatment stops ITB Knee pain for Ironman competitor

ITB Runners knee painWhen a runner of Marathons/Triathalons/Iron Man events visited the Clinic with an ITB pain (Iliotibial Band Syndrome) – a knee pain issue – we were happy to help.

Following treatment with Helen, Stephen from Brighton no longer felt the ITB pain in his knee and completed a Ironman event in a competitive time and injury free.

Here is what he said about the chiropractic treatment:

From ITB pain to Ironman!

Treatment for ITB knee pain by Shoreham Chiropractic ClinicI met Helen following a presentation she held in my workplace in June 2015 and a quick consultation revealed a misalignment in my pelvis. 

I had on-going left ITB issue which had prevented my running in Brighton Marathon earlier in the year and as I was in training for an Ironman Triathlon event a couple of months later I was concerned regarding my fitness. 

After a couple of sessions with Helen I began to feel much stronger and efficient whilst training and within a few weeks my ITB pain had disappeared and the speed associated with a good Run technique had returned.

I completed Ironman Wales in Sep 2015 in a competitive time and injury free.  I’m confident that without Helen’s help in the build-up the journey would have ended differently.

I plan to continue to visit Helen for regular on-going health checks and would thoroughly recommend her abilities.  I found her treatment, support and advice absolutely superb and the results speak for themselves.
