This patient was experiencing anterior hip pain, but after working with Dr. Schreyer on routine physical therapy, she was able to complete a difficult half marathon:

“The Hardest Thing I’ve Ever Done”

“I ran my race a couple of days ago and it went REALLY well! My hips were sore after the fact, but they felt good during the run and I concentrated on core stability throughout the whole race.

“I ended up placing in the top 50 percent of runners! My average mile pace in Iowa is 10’30” while my average pace during this race was 12’38”, so you know it was a tough one! There was 725 ft elevation through the race with a peak elevation at 5,250 ft. On top of that, over two miles of the run was through a rocky area where we had to climb and jump around a ton of rocks.

This half marathon was the hardest thing I have ever done yet it was soooo amazing! I just wanted to express how thankful I am for all of your help throughout the training process. There were definitely times where I felt like giving up, but seeing you always gave me a little push and a glimpse of hope.”
