As a squash pro and avid athlete, I need all my limbs and joints working at the highest level. Six months ago, I was suffering from inflamed stabilizer muscles around my right patella, compounded by tendonitis in that same knee.
After working at Boston Sports Medicine for a short time, I was recovered enough to start exercising again. Then, on a vacation trip, some family and I climbed Wright Peak, number 16 on the Adirondack High Peaks list. The majority of the 3.8-mile climb is moderate grade, though most of that is over treacherous rocks instead of smooth dirt. The last mile is extremely steep, and the last half mile is one brutally tough rock face. I made it to the top in an hour and 45 minutes of hard, exhausting, and almost continual hiking, and I didn’t feel any pain or discomfort in my knee. The way down was equally treacherous, but still nothing in that knee after another hour and 45.
That climb was perhaps the best testament I could have found to prove how far both of the injuries to my right knee have improved. Everyone I worked with at BSM did a phenomenal job getting me back healthy, able to get back on the squash court, and now able to push myself for three hours like I did that day, and I’m ecstatic about it. I’ve had nothing but the best to say about BSM since I started going,
Hopefully my body remains healthy, but should any injuries come up again, I’m not going anywhere else.
