Another Mountain State success story! Amara Mason first arrived at our Mannington office in March of 2020 as a Senior track athlete at North Marion High School. Amara had a previous severe hamstring strain that had turned into a chronic condition called “hamstring syndrome”. The initial injury had resulted in scar tissue and sciatica, sending burning pain and numbness down her leg. Amara began treatment with Chris Moore, who is a Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in both Orthopedic and Sports physical therapy. Treatment consisted of neural mobilization techniques, dry needling, soft tissue massage, and strengthening of the hamstrings, glutes, and core. Initially, progress was slow, but Amara and Chris continued to work and tweak the treatment until she had returned to pain-free sprinting and running hurdles by July.
Amara is now running track at the University of Charleston where she participates in 100 meter and 400 meter hurdles and has began pole vaulting as well. Amara recently finished 5th in the 400 meter hurdles at a meet in Morgantown against numerous Division 1 track teams. Congrats Amara on your successful recovery and good luck in your track career at UC!
