Patient Success Story - Lisa Knestrict

I did not start running long distances until the summer of 2007...I ran my first half marathon!  Things were going great.  I ran a few half marathons the next year, and then I found myself injured in the spring of 2009.  After seeing an orthopedic who suggested resting for 6 weeks and extensive x-rays/MRIs, I decided to try out a chiropractor.  I found Dr. Bozovich luckily through my insurance website.

I was so nervous to see a chiropractor--but I was willing to do anything BESIDES rest for 6 weeks.  She was great. No cracking or manipulations. Just a few simple exercises to get my muscles to "turn back on"  along with some excellent massage therapy!!!!  I felt better within a couple of weeks...and I got to continue running through my recovery. 

I have been back a few times within the past few years. Always just a few quick visits to get me back on track.  I believe I have referred at least 10 fellow runners to her.  We all joke around and call her "the witch doctor," because we have no idea how it all works.  But we know it does work and we wouldn't trade her for the world!!!!
