Neuromuscular therapy to improve running

So it’s marathon season. I see a lot of runners in my practice. One in particular stands out. He’s in his ¬†early 40s and has run 16 consecutive Boston marathons. This past year he started having problems with his right hip and groin which gave him a lot of discomfort and slowed him down, though didn’t keep him from running. Whenever he did speed work he would regret it.
I worked with him weekly for the past 10 months using neuromuscular techniques to work out the problem areas in his glutes, hip flexors and adductors. He just completed his second marathon in 6 weeks, coming in in the top 100 out of 3,000 runners and 4th in his age group, with a time of 3:05. Nothing to sneeze at! And his body feels great. No pain, and when I saw him post race his muscles were supple and loose.
Now I just need to get him to stay hydrated!
