Patient Inspiration: Carrie Miller


From Carrie Miller to Dr. Jared Brown, DPT on April 17th:

” Jared! I made it! I’ve run 32 marathons and that was the most insane weather I’ve ever run in! 30mph winds in our face the whole way and upper 30s and constant downpour of rain. I felt pretty good though! I just ran by feel and went with it. My mantra was “overcome”. I stayed positive and ran with a poncho for 24 miles! I qualified for next years Boston by nearly 10 minutes and did better than expected. Shoulder is doing ok too! Now onto the London marathon on Sunday!!  “

Dr. Jared Brown, DPT’s patient Carrie Miller has been keeping busy running 32 marathons! She most recently qualified for the Boston Marathon by 10 minutes and did better than she anticipated. With 30mph winds in the upper 30s and constant downpour of rain, Carrie persevered and came out on top.

Carrie was post op RTC (return to clinic) repair on her shoulder. She was unable to actively lift and with the help of Dr. Jared Brown, DPT and the Innovative Physical Therapy team, Carrie got her shoulder back to full range of motion and could run again. Congratulations Carrie, IPT is beyond proud of you and your accomplishments.
