Dr. Abelsons Injury and Performance Blog

Triathalons are extremely difficult training and events that challenge athletes at both physical and mental levels.

In the Ironman Triathalon, competitors swim 2.4 miles, cycle 112 miles and run a full 26.2-mile marathon. Participants range from 18-80 years of age and come from over fifty countries.

The extreme training places a great deal of stress on the body, and athletes suffer from a broad range of injuries, as well as over-use stresses.

Iroman, half ironman, olymic and sprint events are held all over the world. For the past few years, ART practitioners have been working at ART clinics in the Ironman Triathalons.

Their participation has resulted in better performance, times, and greater number of athletes completing this incredible event.

Triathlete suffer from a broad range of repetitive strain and stress related injuries. The difficult training causes muscle restrictions due to adhesion formation, and results in numerous types of injuries.

Trained ART practitioners perform a biomechanical analysis of athletes to determine where the restrictions are located along the entire kinetic chain. ART treatments are specific and based upon the individual needs of each athlete. It is not a cookbook approach to treating a non-specific diagnosis.

ART® finds the specific tissues that are restricted and physically works them back to its normal texture, tension, and length by using various hand positions and soft tissue manipulation methods.

Once the soft tissue (ligaments, muscles, blood vessels, fascia and nerves) has returned to its normal state, specific exercises are prescribed.

Unlike most therapies, ART® does not require extended periods of rest before you notice results. You usually see significant improvements to the injured area after only two to three sessions.

It is also not uncommon, after only a few sessions, to see a considerable improvement in the athlete’s best personal performance.
