I was dealing with chronic IT Band tightness and friction that caused intermittent knee pain for over a year. The pain was manageable for most of 2018 until I completed my 19-mile training run, five weeks prior to the NYC marathon. From that point on, the inflammation and associated pain sidelined me from continuing to run; I had only completed three taper runs in total in the last five weeks leading up to race day. I tried many various interventions in the past, but with a combined approach of dry needling therapy, rehab exercises, and other manual therapy techniques, Noah got me back on my feet and helped me cross the finish line at the 2018 NYC marathon with a 4:06 finish. I was just shy of my time goal, but happy to even finish considering the knee injury. I was able to run the entire race without having to stop at any medical tents along the way too. Thanks Noah and Professional PT!!
