Dennis describes how Dr. Curtis has helped him alleviate back and leg pain from an old injury and stay active.
Misty’s Success Story
I am a Masters level CrossFit athlete with hopes of the goal of someday competing at the CrossFit Games. I train five days a week with two double days, work with a personal strength and conditioning coach, and regularly take part in local competitions. Over the past eight years, I have gone from casual CrossFitting to serious training and my body has tried to keep up with me.
As part of keeping my body ready for what I ask of it and helping it recover from what I do with it, I have routine body work done including massage, Rolfing, and acupuncture with local professionals, as well as working with Dr. Bob Curtis at Advanced Sports Chiropractic.
I have been working with Dr. Bob since 2008. Over the years, he has helped me through regular chiropractic adjustments to keep my body working well. Additionally, when I had two different significant injuries (one to my shoulder and one to my ankle) he used a combination of chiropractic, Graston and ART treatments to help me regain full range of motion and function afterwards. He has also used both soft tissue and chiropractic treatments to help keep my low-back and knees from aching and has most recently treated a irritated ulnar nerve that threatened to keep me from competing.
In addition to being a knowledgeable practitioner, Dr. Bob understands the mentality of an athlete and the demands of CrossFit as a sport. I feel that he empathizes with and supports what I do, as well as what I want to do. I know that he will do what he can and what he believes is best to help me achieve my competition goals without compromising my long-term health and fitness.
This year I had my highest finish yet in worldwide CrossFit Open – 79th for Masters Women aged 45-59 – which qualified me to compete in the Masters’ Qualifiers where I finished at 39th in the world. Only 19 places short of qualifying for the CrossFit Games! I’ve already started training for next year’s Open, and routine visits to see Dr. Bob will definitely support that training.
