"I began competing in 1973. Covering more than 80,000 miles in training and competing in five US Olympic Trials, such long-term wear and tear means I now require a lot of recovery support to remain competitive. I stretch. I ice. I use a foam roller; however, the single biggest factor I have found in avoiding chronic injuries is regular body work with Brad McKay at Performance Therapy SC. He is diligent in understanding my biomechanical needs as a racewalker and has solved a long-term hamstring problem I developed from the constant turns in track races. This allowed me to set a US Master's indoor (50-54) record for the Mile racewalk in March, 2013 at 7:09. Whether you are injured or simply need to maintain supple muscles to excel in your event, I recommend a series of sessions with Brad."
