Achilles pain in triathlete

"My Name is Doug Miller and I am a Drug-Free professional bodybuilder. I am extremely hard on my body, as I weight train very intensely 6 times a week and sometimes more than once a day. Staying injury free is absolutely essential to my success in my sport.
In April I developed a severe injury to my left elbow. I went to a number of orthopedic surgeons who did not have a definitive diagnosis or treatment plan for my elbow. I was having extreme pain when doing any exercise involving my triceps and was having trouble fully extending my arm. As a result of this, my training and strength to that area was reduced. This problem went on for 4 months until I finally decided to go see Dr. Maggs. Active release therapy has been helpful in dealing with other injuries so I figured I would give it a shot for my elbow. Within 5 visits to Dr. Maggs, my elbow was significantly better, my range of motion was significantly improved, and my strength was increasing. After another couple of weeks, my strength was what is was before the injury and my range of motion and pain were significantly reduced.
For a period of time, I thought my elbow was never going to get better, and I have been extremely impressed with the work Dr. Maggs has performed on my elbow. He performed ART on me at the same time I continued to train intensely and my elbow problem continued to improve. I think that this is amazing, as I did not have to miss any training to allow my injury to recover. He focused not only on the direct source of pain, but focused on my entire left side, as he understands the intricate details of the anatomy of the arm and shoulder and how all these muscle interrelate. I think his work on my forearm, tricep, and shoulder helped my elbow significantly. Dr. Maggs also explains the “what’s” and “why’s” of what he is doing very well and even went as far as printing out relevant sports medicine article relating to my injury that he thought I would find helpful.
If you are an athlete or are just experiencing a nagging injury that just won’t go away, I highly recommend seeing Dr. Maggs for his active release services."

"Dr. Kevin Maggs specializes in runners and athletes. He caught an issue with my knee in which two orthopedics misdiagnosed as IT band Syndrome. Dr. Maggs took the time to analyze my run by filming me on day one. He really works to get you back on the road to meet your personal goals ASAP. He uses a technique called Active Release Techniques (ART). He and his wife run the practice they have a friendly receptionist and work early and late hours to accommodate everyone. The receptionist is super friendly you will not be disappointed."
"I began to suffer from plantar fascitis and some other foot problems mostly related to under-used tendons and ligaments in my feet during that year of near immobility. I had gone to a podiatrist, spent lots of money on orthodics and physical therapy for my feet with no real relief. I did all the taping, icing, and other relief therapies suggested with no success.
Then, my daughter (a medical student) suggested ART, saying she was being treated by a chiropractor in New York who had used ART. She had chronic back pain as a result of a car accident several years ago. She had periodically gone to chiropractors since the accident for pain relief and spinal adjustment, which helped her, however, sometimes temporarily. This NY chiropractor had suggested ART in addition to his other more common chiropractic therapy. She told me ART made a huge difference for her. She had asked her doctor if ART would work for foot problems. He gave her a lot of material for me to read about ART and the successes he had using it.
I asked Dr. Maggs if she knew anything about it and she said her husband had training in ART. I saw Dr. Kevin Maggs for only four appointments and I can now walk with no pain (after a year of complete inactivity). Dr. Maggs took a lot of time to explain ART, how it works, what was the cause of the pain in my feet and especially my heels. He showed me how the tendons, ligaments and muscles in the feet and ankles are constructed and how they operate and what makes them become knotted and painful.
Finally, after a year of complete inactivity, I can walk again! I’m not taking pain killers anymore and I am looking forward to becoming physically strong again now that I can do normal activities without chronic pain.

"My pain was constant, but kept to a dull roar with 880 mg of Aleve twice per day…After just one treatment pain was significantly reduced. Following up with two additional treatments, the pain was completely resolved."

"A year ago I tripped and landed with all my weight on my knees. It took months for the knee pain to subside, but it returned this spring when I started playing golf. After my first golf game my knees were painful all the time, but particularly when bent. I could not squat down to line up a put. After 3-4 Active Release Treatments (ART) with Dr. Kevin Maggs, the pain is gone and I have full mobility in both knees."
