 “As a mountain ultra-distance runner, I depend on physical therapy to repair injuries, maintain a fit body, and aid recovery. Cindy Schmidt is an excellent PT for athletes. My first office visit was to address a specific injury. Cindy thoroughly assessed my injury and designed a treatment plan that included rehabilitation and maintenance. Her intuitive approach incorporated recovery methods that increased my overall recovery time. I continue to work with Cindy on a regular basis – two to three times a month – to maintain a healthy body, which ultimately improves my overall performance. Since working with Cindy – I have achieved my performance goals! I highly recommend Cindy for a holistic approach to Physical Therapy.”

“I ran 100 miles in two days and just totally trashed my legs, such that I couldn’t even walk without pain. I am super grateful to Cindy for helping me get back on my feet. She was super kind and helpful and understanding with everything, and she did everything possible to get me running again as soon as possible.”

“As an avid climber, I have suffered from chronic tightness in my upper back, neck, shoulders, and traps. While visiting Durango, I contacted Pathways and was able to get an appointment extremely quick. I was greeted at the door and received two treatments of dry needling within a matter of days. After my first session with Melissa, my full range of motion returned and I had my first pain-free climbing session in almost 6 months. I am forever grateful for returning to my favorite activity in such a quick timeframe.”
