"I would like to highly recommend Mike Danenberg and his staff at performance therapy. As a 54 yr old runner and one who has competed since age 14 i thought i knew a good bit about running. After having Mike observe my form i felt like a running virgin. He showed me a much more efficeient form that would help reduce my injuries as well as keep my speed. He explains things in a very easy to understand method and is extremely patient with my many questions. He also has an excellent knack with young runners and puts them at ease right away. His work with my daughter and her shin problems was phenomenal. His approach of finding the cause of a pain and not just chasing the pain away is much more beneficial if you plan on being in this sport for the long haul. I would highly recommend mike and performance therapy if you are having any running related problems."
