Feeling better and stronger after many sessions of physical therapy is truly a success. Dr. Hayden remembers one marathon runner who came in with a herniated disc. Dr. Hayden recalls: “He hurt his back and could barely walk. He wanted to run a marathon in six weeks in Paris`. We worked together for several weeks, and by week six, he was running the marathon in Paris.”
