Professional runner Todd Iacovelli came to IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health in Oahu, Hawaii, after struggling with over three years of lower leg pain. Many doctors were puzzled at the source of Iacovelli's pain, and some even told him to stop running. Iacovelli is a Hawaii State Record Holder and an eight-time Hawaii State Champion, and he knew he had to get well somehow. By focusing on nutrition, biomechanics, and more, Dr. Elizabeth M. Ignacio and Dr. Nicole Yukiko Gesik from IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health helped heal Iacovelli's body and save his career.
Here, Iacovelli describes what it was like to work with Dr. Ignacio and Dr. Gesik:
"Dr. Ignacio was a breath of fresh air, as her knowledge and positivity combined to help me understand that it was still possible for me to run pain-free. She and Dr. Gesik developed a plan that looked in-depth at everything from my biomechanics to my nutrition. As a direct result of their efforts, I was able to get healthy and set a personal best, for the first time since 2009...Their intelligence, attitude, and genuine spirit of care is inspiring."
