We’re excited to finally introduce our guest review team! We have talked for a long time about bringing in new faces, but we’re weren’t quite sure how til recently. Moving forward, our plan is to bring in members of the Physical Therapy community to join the team to write reviews and share their skillset.
We’re excited to not only share our knowledge, but learn from others and help broaden what we do at Doctors of Running. With that in mind, we’re excited to introduce Andrea Myers, Megan Flynn, and Ryan Flugaur to the team moving forward as Guest Reviewers. Read on to learn a little bit more about our new teammates!
Andea Myers is a Doctor of Physical Therapy and Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist who sees patients in Bethel, CT at Carlson ProCare. She also provides bike fitting services at Class Cycles in Southbury, CT. Andrea completed her undergraduate degree in molecular and cellular biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She graduated from St. Ambrose University in 2006 with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy.
Andrea has a strong background in treating patients with a variety of orthopedic diagnoses, including sports injuries, back and neck pain, and patients who have undergone orthopedic surgery. She has extensive training in manual therapy, including myofascial release, Integrative Manual Therapy, craniosacral therapy, and Kinesiotaping. Andrea is also certified in vestibular rehabilitation for the treatment of vertigo and balance disorders. She is well known for her knowledge and experience in treating runners, cyclists, and multi-sport athletes of all levels.
Andrea started running with her parents at the age of 4 and competed in both track and cross country from a young age through high school.. She ran a disastrous Chicago Marathon in 2003, learning important lessons about fueling in the process. Not long after Chicago, Andrea was forced to stop running due to persistent patellofemoral pain. She turned to spin class for a physical outlet, where she met a cycling coach who encouraged her to take up road cycling.
Her running fitness helped her take to the bike quickly, and she went from a novice to a professional racer in the span of 2 years. She has multiple top-ten placings in international level (UCI) competitions, and has numerous championship titles at the state and regional level.
The time off from running in addition to comprehensive physical therapy treatment allowed her to gradually re-introduce running in the off season. She has shifted focus from cycling back to running over the past few years, and is now primarily focusing on running to see what is possible.
