Thanks to Dr. Stu, I successfully completed the More Half Marathon on April 15. Two months ago, I didn't think there was any way that this would be possible!
In December, I decided to train for the half marathon. I had been a casual runner (3 to 4 miles once a week), so preparing was going to take a great deal of training. My plan was to add a running regimen to my exercise routine which had previously consisted only of spinning and boot camp classes at the gym. For the first 4 weeks, my training went well. Then, during a boot camp class, something went wrong during one of the weight exercises, and I felt a sharp and excruciating pain in my right leg. At first I ignored the pain, and I tried to continue to work out, but after one week, I realized that I would need some intervention in order to resume my training. I consulted a trainer at the gym, and she suggested that I see a chiropractor. I showed her a list of the chiropractors who were covered by my insurance company, and without any hesitation she recommended Dr. Stu. I was leery of seeing a chiropractor for this pain, but since my training had come to a complete stop, I was feeling desperate. Dr. Stu performed a thorough evaluation and diagnosed the problem. He adjusted me that day and twice a week for 3 more weeks. I could feel the improvements and was thrilled with the diminished pain. By the end of the treatments, my body was back to normal. I continued my training without any problems or any pain, and I successfully completed the half marathon. Without Dr. Stu's help, I would have never achieved my goal.
From a runner in pain
Back in December, I was in so much lower back pain and discomfort that I could hardly stand up straight, let alone walk. It was really starting to kick my butt. In January, I made my first visit to Dr Stu. Dr Stu told me I had issues with certain SI joints, problems with ligaments, scoliosis, along with other issues with some muscles in my legs. I started going to Dr Stu 3 times a week! A week later, I decided that I would like to participate in the More 1/2 Marathon in honor of turning 40 in December. I was hardly in any "back shape" to start training, but Dr Stu kept "tuning" me up. A week after I decided to run I went backwards in my therapy by shoveling snow during a storm. Back to square one. I kept my 3 times a week visit and started to feel so much better - looser, straighter, and stronger. After awhile I was able to drop my visits down to once a week. As I was decreasing my visits, I was increasing my training for the 1/2 marathon. I was feeling good for the most part. Whatever issues I was having a sore lower back, tight IT band, charlie horses, Dr Stu helped me get rid them all with other techniques for muscles, like ART and Graston. 3 months after I started seeing Dr Stu, I started and finished (without stopping) the More 1/2 Marathon. I also beat my goal. A few days after the marathon I went back to Dr Stu and once again he "tuned" me up. I thank Dr Stu for all his work on me and his continuing to learn more for all his patients. Dr Stu inspires not only by his knowledge and love of being a chiropractor but by his involvement in sports and fitness. -Nicole K
From a cyclist
Three weeks before long anticipated bike race I woke up with bad neck pain and figured that it will be no race for me this year. I couldn't move my head left or right. Went to see Dr Stu he treated me and in couple of weeks I was 100% better. Race day came and I was able to participate and complete Tour of Battenkill!Thanks Dr. Stu -Rade P
From a patient with a sports injury
Since seeing Dr. Weitzman on a regular basis I'm able to move freely without any pain. It's easier for me to do sports, since I'm very active. I'm very grateful to my coach for recommending me to Dr. Weitzman.-Michael C.
From a pregnant patient
I went to see Dr. Weitzman when I was 31 weeks pregnant. My baby was breech. I wanted the baby to turn to avoid having to deliver by C-section. I found doctor Weitzman through the ICPA website for the Webster technique. I saw the Dr. 3 times a week for 2 weeks and then 2x/wk for 2 weeks. After 11 visits, two weeks before my due date, my obgyn confirmed by ultrasound that the baby had turned. I am beyond greatful to the doctor for turning the baby. I know that she turned because of his chiropractic adjustments. I was thrilled to have an extremely easy labor and delivery, and I am unbelievably greatful to Dr. Weitzman for his brilliant work and making this happen. My recovery from labor was also quick and easy. Words can not express my gratitude to Dr. Weitzman. I feel truly blessed that I found him. -Nicole P.
From a family
My family and I have been going to Dr. Stu for about five years now. We started taking my son to Dr.Stu when he was just a few months old and my daughter when she was only seven days old! Since then, we've found that chiropractic adjustments have helped our children recover quickly from any colds or illnesses. In fact, chiropractic care is our first line of defense for our family. We all see Dr.Stu at the first signs of illness. His gentle techniques and easy manner have always made it easy for the kids to get adjusted. My son, who is now five years old, and my daughter, who is two years old, love their adjustments and look forward to seeing Dr.Stu every month. Chiropractic care is definitely something we all believe in--not only for sickness, but also for general well-being.-Marisa and John
From a young patient
Nick enjoys Dr. Stuart and likes to talk about sports while he is being treated. Dr. Stuart is really great with kids. Our family is better for knowing Dr. Stuart.-Nick's Mom
From a pregnant patient whose baby was breech
When I was 37 weeks pregnant, my ob told me that the baby was breech and I would need a c-section. I spoke with my brother, who is a chiropractor in another state, and he recommended Dr. Weitzman to me. Within three visits spanning the course of a week, Dr. Weitzman had my baby turned around and head down in position for a natural delivery. At my next weekly visit, my ob performed a quick ultrasound and confirmed that the baby was head down, which she stayed until I delivered. I contribute this quick turn around to Dr. Weitzman's chiropractic adjustments and I highly recommend him to anyone with interest. -Dawn B.
"With the help of Dr. Stu
I was experiencing severe pain in my inner thigh/groin area for a few weeks. I thought it was just from overuse and strain as I was training for a marathon. The pain was unbearable. I had difficulty just walking, coaching soccer and was unable to run at all. I was very discouraged as I had just started my marathon training. I tried ice, heat and rested it quite a bit, but after several visits with various doctors, it wasn't healing.
Dr. Stu is a fellow Taconic Road Runner who came highly recommended by several friends so I decided to go visit with him and see what he had to say. He was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to get a better understanding of the origin of pain, the triggers and work together with me on a plan. He was able to use ART to work the specific area aggressively and after a few visits, I was slowly feeling back to my old self. With his help, I was able to resume my training and am now ready to run the NYC marathon in 3 weeks. I hope to remain injury free for the duration of my running career!!! -Ilana
From a runner getting back into the sport
After several years of being a sedentary suburbanite (post college and having kids), I decided it was time to add some physical activity to my daily routine. I started running and started feeling better almost overnight. I even completed a few 5ks. After running for a few months my calf began to hurt (knotting up and shooting pain). It was uncomfortable on flat surfaces and unbearable on hills/declines. After trying to fix the issue myself (ice and rest) with no results, I decided to see Dr. Stu. Dr. Stu examined me and decided to use ART (Active Release Technique) to get my calf to heal. He even used Kinesiotape on my knee to give the muscles support and help them heal even more quickly. In short order, I was back out and running and feeling great (I would also be remiss if I didn't point out that he adjusted my back during my appointments as well and my back is feeling like it did when I was 18 years old)!
Dr. Stu fixed the immediate issue I went to see him for, but he also provided me with a wealth of insight and guidance with regard to my running and training regimen. He took a very straight forward, honest approach and didn't promise unrealistic results (however I am still amazed that in just over a week he got me from someone who could barely walk to being out on the road running). Dr. Stu is an amazing chiropractor and I would strongly encourage anyone with a physical injury or pain to see him. -Tom, Katonah
From a runner in Philadelphia
I am a 56 year old from the Philadelphia area with dreams of running half marathons with my daughter. I first learned about Dr. Stu at the 2011 Sleepy Hollow Half Marathon. I injured my knee during training three weeks before the race. I had the same injury about 4 years ago and it eventually went away after stopping all running for several months. So I stopped running again and planned to shut down for at least two months. I went to the Sleepy Hollow race to cheer on my daughter. I was devastated that I couldn't run with her. In the packets distributed to the runners, I found an article written by Dr. Stu. It clearly identified the injury I was experiencing and convinced me that I didn't necessarily have to shut down the activity I love so much for so long. My devastation turned into hope. I contacted Dr. Stu and his staff and everyone from scheduling to billing were excellent. Despite the significant distance, I started seeing Dr. Stu immediately. Within 2 visits I was running long distances again without any pain. His care and running tips have been invaluable. I've just registered for several races with my daughter with the comfort of knowing that Dr. Stu is there for me if I run into any trouble. -Bill
From an IRONMAN that DrStu worked on in Lake Placid
I've been meaning to fire off an email to say thank you for giving me the ART treatment before the Ironman and to generally thank you for being a supportive voice before and after the race. Good to see you at the finish and let you know that the shoulder felt great during the swim...enough to give me a good lead getting onto the bike (which I quickly lost on the hill). I really didn't know anything about ART but I was amazed at the instantaneous relief it provided. Seriously, it helped tremendously with a shoulder problem that had been nagging me for months prior to the race almost to the point of wondering wether I should do the race at all! The race went well and I thank you for your time and the professional focus on the shoulder and realization of what the problem stemmed from. It felt great race day and to top the day off I ended up raising alot of money for the YMCA so I felt good about that too! -Paul O.
From a Health Care Provider
Dr. Weitzman is the consummate holistic practitioner. I have been under his ongoing care for three years, and I am always surprised about the many areas of my life with which he can help me. When we began, I had a lot of neck and jaw problems. After 15 years of suffering, Dr. Weitzman has helped me to get my TMJ under control, and I am now symptom-free. He has helped me through elbow injuries, leg injuries, and multiple foot injuries. When I am over-stressed, he utilizes cranio-sacral methods to help me come into balance. He uses cranial adjustments to relieve headaches and sinus problems. Chiropractic with Dr. Weitzman has become a staple for maintaining wellness in my life. -Dr. Samantha Slotnick, Behavioral Optometrist
