“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!”
