I am a mountaineer (that would include rock and ice climbing) and a triathlete. I have a chronic back injury in the last ~8 years, and I have seen several PTs. I can really say that in my case, Dr Velsmid approach is the best. He would understand the biomechanical problem, find an approach to adjust whatever is wrong, and above all ? he explain the way things work. He pays attention to limitations - e.g. will try to focus on exercises that take reasonable time; would help an athlete keep on the routine and not stop doing sports. Finally and most important ? it works! After being limited in my abilities for about 4 month due to major injury, he brings me back into my beloved way of living ? combining the sports that keep me happy.
