NJ Chiropractor Helped Me Run the New York Marathon

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 26, 2018

I was training for the New York City Marathon. I was having really sharp knee pains and I couldn't run for more than a mile without a knee band. But, I had to train 26.2 miles so I was really nervous.

I came to see Dr. Hernandez, a chiropractor in North Bergen, NJ. Immediately, since our first session, he was able to help me; he knew where to massage my leg. I came to him throughout my whole training, through the whole summer until November which was the month of the marathon. I came to him every week with different complaints. There was a time that I came to see him with very bad shin splints. I couldn't run more than a half mile without feeling it. After coming to him just two or three times I couldn't feel them anymore; the shin splints went away and I was able to run.

My biggest fear was not being able to finish the marathon because of pain or injury. But, because of Dr. Hernandez I finished and I recovered quickly. I am so thankful that he was able to help me because I would not have been able to do it without him.

Acupuncture is a non-drug, non-invasive therapy that has a variety of benefits – from pain management to helping with stress reduction, circulation and sleep disorders. An acupuncturist must be committed to providing effective and comprehensive acupuncture treatments for pain as well as common medical conditions. Acupuncture offers effective treatments for acute and chronic musculature injuries.

As an acupuncturist the goal is to enhance the bodies energy by using specific points on specific meridians so that the body can heal itself.

Different modalities are used for different bodies and injuries. The various techniques include cupping, acupuncture, infra-red therapy, and electric stimulations to enhance the treatment.
