Physical Therapy Testimonials - Dave Briggs

Dave Briggs Visited Elite and MPower for Physical Therapy

 

 

Competitive cycler, Dave Briggs, visited our friends at MPOWER Performance Institute after a car accident. Here is what he has to say about his expeience at MPOWER.

 

Leg Injury Prior to MPOWER

I had just finished my 16th season of competitive cycling when I was involved in a car accident. Following the incident, I noticed my times were going down and I was having more knee pain than normal. I went for an MRI and found out that my left quadricep tendon was torn.

 

 

The MPower Physical Therapists Helped Me Regain Form

I had been referred to MPOWER by a fellow cyclist that had surgery and rehabbed here. My physical therapy was great. Working with a professional who knew which elements to stretch and is an expert on mobility led to great progress. There is no way I would have recovered nearly as fast or successfully without MPOWER.

After therapy, I noticed my knee pain was gone and my competitive results had gone up tremendously. My success with their physical therapists led me to MPOWER’s personal training program.

 

 

My Experience With Personal Training at MPOWER 

Years ago, I did some serious weight lifting, training, and even a couple of body building shows, so I figured kind of knew what I was doing. Well, things have happened and improved in the 30 years since I started going to the gym. I realized that I’ve been doing some exercises wrong all these years.

It’s been a blessing training with MPOWER. Some of the stuff that we do, I never would have even thought of trying. Keith has been fabulous to work with, too. He understands my passion and my focus of cycling and implements a program that compliments my primary objective – being faster on the bike. My goal is to have as many years of competitive racing as I can. I focus on increased performance, but really, just the totality of core strength and overall fitness that keeps you healthy and increases my career longevity is why I train.

The one-on-one accountability has worked wonders. Everyone is different so having a workout that is tailor-made just for me has been great. The variety of exercises each serve their own purpose and we rotate exercises to confuse muscles and make them adapt. It is also more fun not being stuck in the same routine time after time. Some of the weight that I’m pushing now, I haven’t done since college years.

I’d just like to thank everyone here at MPOWER. I recommend it to anyone I can because of how far I’ve come and the friendly staff. I feel great now!
