The Chicago Marathon is just around the corner and runners
are well into their training routines. Having helped thousands of athletes gain
peak performance on collegiate and professional levels, Dr. Daniel Jacobazzi –
Chicago’s only dual licensed Chiropractor and Physical Therapist at phyxMe
Physical Therapy, shares how he helps athletes recover from training and
athletic injuries faster and without the need for surgery, then go on to beat
their best personal records (PRs) after treatment.
You can use these same strategies to maximize your running and endurance performance during the 2019 Chicago Marathon while reducing the risk of injury training and being able to recovery faster after the marathon race is finished.
Preventive Care and Posture Alignment
When are our bodies are not aligned our posture is affected, which sets off a chain reaction of issues – from shoulder and neck pain, to scoliosis (sideways curvature in the spine), back and knee pain. This also causes the body to compensate on its own, such as turning out of a foot or flatting of an arch. These small changes alter the way we move and can result in significant pain from strained muscles, pinched nerves and worn joints. When our body’s skeletal alignment is corrected our natural biomechanics kick in automatically and allow us to run with optimal movement without needing to consciously correct anything. Our detailed analysis will quickly identify any structural issues that may be increasing your risk of injury or under performance.
Cryotherapy Cold Chambers Boost Marathon Performance and Endurance
Cryotherapy and the use of Cold Chambers where temperatures drop to under minus two hundred degrees are very safe treatment when supervised by medical staff and helps: reduce inflammation, relieve muscle pain and sprains, promote healing of soft tissue and lower swelling.
Dr. Jacobazzi also uses Cryotherapy Cold Chambers to give athletes a boost in performance during training and competition. The cryotherapy treatment the week and days before the marathon ramps up cellular ATP to boosts oxidation levels, allowing you to experience an immediate increase in endurance, speed and overall performance.
Proactively Dealing with Training Injuries
Training injuries are common when preparing for such a vigorous endurance event like the Chicago Marathon. If you are like most marathon runners, you have already started to experience some twinges or small training injuries during your training. It is human nature to not want to miss out on the race and just power through power the pain, pop some pain relievers and push off the healing and recovery until after the Chicago Marathon.
The problem with this avoidance approach is that it cannot only cause your injury to get much worse, you can actually miss the marathon and even jeopardize your ability to compete at all in the future as well. Not to mention the dramatic affect even over the counter pain killers have on our body long term.
At phyxMe Physical Therapy, Dr. Daniel Jacobazzi creates customized treatment plans for his athletes and marathon runners that utilize the most advanced state-of-the-art technology to heal faster and reduce pain.

phyxMe Physical Therapy is the only clinic in Chicago to utilize a Class 4 Level Laser that can safely produce up to 60W of power and thus go almost 1200 times deeper into the tissue and muscle than a traditional cold laser used by most clinics. Patients report an immediate reduction of over 50% of their pain levels after just one session while reducing their healing time by almost half, virtually eliminating the need for pain killers while promoting your body to heal naturally.
Mechanical Decompression Table Therapy
Mechanical Decompression Therapy uses a special motorized traction table that allows up to 200 pounds of pressure to be used to stretch the spine. This creates negative pressure in the spinal discs in a much more effective manner than typical decompression techniques.
Mechanical Decompression Therapy is used to help alleviate pain in the back, neck, sciatica, spinal joints, injured or diseased spinal nerve roots and retract bulging or herniated discs. This removes the pressure from the nerves and other structures around the spine to help promote the movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal faster.
Proven Expertise and 98% Success Rate
One of the things that makes Dr. Daniel Jacobazzi’s approach special is his dedication to physical medicine and actually earning two different medical degrees with a Masters in Physical Therapy and Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine. By combining the two physical disciplines, in combination with being a collegiate athlete who suffered chronic pain since middle school, he has dedicated over 20 years to combining the best approaches and technology to have an unheard of 98% success rate in helping his athletes and patients return to functional movement without surgery, including the most dire cases where surgeries were the only options.
