“What I appreciate about the Bridging® approach is that the body is all connected. I may have knee pain, but it might not be the cause but rather the symptom of something else.” Katie O (41)
What prompted you to seek help?
After a friend described how Kinetic Konnections helped her with a yoga injury and her son with a sensory disorder, I felt I needed someone like this on my team for the kind of marathon running that I do. My goal was to run two, 50-mile ultra marathons that year and I wanted to make sure my body could handle it. As I was starting to train for my first of the 50-milers, the area behind my knee got inflamed. I thought now is the time to consider some additional options.
I had been in physical therapy in the past for Sacroiliac (SI) joint pain issues and I wasn’t getting any better. It wasn’t an injury necessarily, but rather an annoyance – an old nagging injury that pops up and hinders my running goals.
What unique insight did Kinetic Konnections have?
What I appreciate about the Bridging® approach is that the body is all connected. I may have knee pain, but it might not be the cause but rather the symptom of something else.
they look at the whole movement pattern of your body and see insights on while it may be your knee that is bothering you, it really could be an impingement in your shoulder that is throwing off your whole gait. I love that Cara can identify that by looking at the whole body.
Within a few sessions I felt night and day different. I have been through different levels of physical therapy and there is a place for both types of treatment.
For now I schedule something a few weeks before and then after a major race. She helps fix whatever I’ve done in my crazy races. She will look at my specifics – even have me go run in the parking lot.
The type of running that I do Is hard on the body. I’m so glad that I have my team of three to help me – my sports chiropractor, sports massage therapist, and Kinetic Konnections.
