I'd like to personally attest to how awesome Dr. Todd is! He was at Lake Placid this past weekend and I was having a little trouble with my upper back two days prior to the race. Dr. Todd treated me and I then felt perfect going into the race. I went on to have the best Ironman of my life hitting a 11:07:xx on the tough Lake Placid course. Then he helped me with some treatments for my legs for recovery immediately following the race. I literally can't say enough enough great things about Dr. Todd. If you're having any issues, go see him!
I began treatment at All Pro Health in February 2013 while training for my first half ironman triathlon in June. My workouts were being hampered due to persistent right upper hamstring pain for the past year. There were times I couldn't run, and even going from a seated to standing position caused debilitating discomfort. Traditional treatments of rest, physical therapy, and NSAID usage all failed to make my leg pain free. I was discouraged.
Within two weeks under the care of Dr. Schragen, I had a significant decrease in pain. The Graston Technique and Active Release Therapy (ART) were employed and they worked! The best part of being treated with these modalities was that I could continue training for my triathlon. My leg continued to improve and I was even was able to run a half marathon only five weeks after initiating care with Dr. Schragen.
While my hamstring pain resolved, unfortunately in early April I sustained a stress fracture in my lower left tibia from running. Walking caused intense pain and running was impossible. I thought my dream of completing the half ironman was dashed. Dr. Schragen remained positive and treated my tibia with laser and other strategies. Due to his care, I became stable enough to swim and bike and keep up my fitness level.
In June I was able to fulfill my goal of completing my first half ironman. The treatment I received at All Pro Health was a major influence in helping me reach this accomplishment. I am grateful of the individualized care and ongoing support from Dr. Schragen and all of the staff at All Pro Health.
I had the good fortune of meeting Dr. Schragen when I was training for my third Ironman, and the timing couldn’t possibly have been better. After two and a half years of constant, chronic pain from a herniated cervical disc and thoracic outlet syndrome, I was convinced I’d exhausted all of my options for conservative treatment. By the time I met Dr. Schragen, I’d already been treated by four chiropractors, two acupuncturists, three physical therapists, two pain management M.D.’s, and had had a variety of diagnostic testing. I had significant weakness, numbness and tingling in my left arm, and everything from folding laundry to swimming the 2,800+ yards that my training plan called for was painful.
I was immediately impressed with the amount of time Dr. Schragen spent with me during each visit, and his genuine concern for defining and treating the root cause versus the symptom. Through his skillful combination of a variety of treatment techniques and modalities, I saw measurable improvement in both strength and range of motion within my first two weeks of treatment, and for the first time in years experienced a pain-free existence.
The incorporation of physical and yoga therapies at All-Pro Health complement Dr. Schragen’s treatment exceptionally well, and are a testament to his desire to provide his clients with The Best.
It is rare to find a practitioner who so expertly combines skill and intuition to achieve results in such a short time frame. I am grateful to have found Dr. Schragen and the team at All-Pro Health, and will continue to be their biggest fan as I train for and compete in endurance sports!
