I was a active 25 year old, running 3-4 times a week and playing soccer regularly. I trained and ran a half marathon that ended with severe lateral left knee pain. Physiotherapist, Sports Doctors, and Acupuncturist attributed my “IT Band Syndrome” to tight facia and weak muscles in my leg/gluts. I received acupuncture in my quad, cortisone injections, and I was on anti-inflammatory therapy for months. None of these treatments helped, I continued to have pain that greatly restricted my physical activity for over a year. A friend started to see Dean at Performax and suggested I do the same. Within 8 sessions, none of which involved the treatment of my knee, I was back at the gym 5 days a week and even starting to run again. I am very thankful to Dean for looking at the whole picture and getting me back out doing the activities I love.
