    I think really good PT's are BETTER at figuring out the root causes of problems than the docs. TONS better. The doc can tell me "you have tendonitis in this tendon" The PT can say "the tendonitis is caused by THIS muscle being too tight AND this other muscle being too weak" If I could go to a PT without going to a doc, I would SO be there already.

      That sounds like a good combo. I'm definitely going to hit my PA up for a PT referral after the race if problems persist (which I'm kind of assuming they will).
