I met Heather following a running-related stress fracture to my left foot. Convinced that the problem was not my footwear but the ultimate result of very old (3+ decades) unrehabbed childhood surgeries to my right hip (that caused me a vast amount of pain while running, but like all runners, I ran anyway), I asked my doctor to recommend a physical therapist who could help resolve this root problem. When I met with Heather, she listened to my assessment (rare in the medical industry), did her own thorough evaluation, and then came up with a thorough plan to break down the decades’ worth of scar tissue, rebuild the nearly absent mind-body connection to that area, and explained what she was doing, every step of the way. In early 2012, I walked in gingerly on my post-stress fracture foot and a year later, in 2013, completed my first half-marathon. It’s been nearly five years since Heather cleared up the scar tissue and started my hip on the path to rebuilt strength and flexibility, and I’ve since completed six half-marathons, two marathons, and numerous 5ks and 10ks. All with NO hip pain. Heather knows what she’s doing, has experience as an athlete and expertise bar none as a FMT practitioner, and will even find a way to make you laugh while working on you.
