“I was referred to Earl Wenk with specific treatment requirements following surgery on my shins for Chronic Exertional Compartment Syndrome, which I developed from my training as a figure skater.  His methodologies for treatment and techniques have been extremely helpful and greatly enhanced my rehabilitation.  Now that my shins are back on track, I continue to see Earl, as he has become part of my weekly training and recovery regime – as well as an instrumental part of my support team! He is professional, competent, knowledgeable and personable.  His background and experience in sport is invaluable – his curiosity and determination to provide the most effective treatments is outstanding. I would certainly not hesitate to recommend Earl to other athletes – or, for that matter, non-athletes!”

“Earl has helped keep me healthy despite my rigorous training regime. I have had numerous scares with IT band, plantar fascia, shin splints, and adductor tightness, but with specific stretching and massage, Earl has kept me on the track, with no time off from injury.”
