Damien Howell Physical Therapy is:
I went to see Damien Howell for a gait analysis and he showed me that I was not completely recovered. The calf muscle on the injured leg is about ¾ the size of the other leg. I need to do some strength training on the muscle as well as core strength. I was surprised at what Damien’s computer video analysis could show. I’m generally skeptical about things like this and being a guy, just want to go out and run. As I get older I seem to be listening to others a lot more. There is something to be said for looking at how you run and getting some expert advice.
