Ellen’s Story – Triathlete
Meet Ellen Adams, athlete extraordinaire! Ellen was seen at our Generation Care Performance Center in Grand Rapids for running specific physical therapy by Scott McKeel, PT, DPT, CSCS.
Ellen is an elite swimmer and an avid triathlete who was struggling with knee and calf pain during her summer training cycle. At the beginning of treatment, Ellen was struggling to complete 2-mile runs without pain. After four weeks of physical therapy and religiously performing her prescribed exercises, Ellen recently competed in the Reeds Lake Triathalon (sprint) where she placed 7th overall and 1st in her age group! More importantly, she did it pain-FREE! Great job, Ellen! You’re an inspiration to us all!
