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.
