These innovative techniques were both eye-opening and beneficial to my condition.
basketball player, former Boston Celtics star
Kevin played next to Larry Bird in Boston Celtics for many years. Kevin fractured the bone in his foot. Unfortunately, he was misdiagnosed, and played with the pain until the end of the season. Kevin was concerned that he might not be able to play in the next season. The surgery was performed on his foot; the cast was up to the knee. He came to Igor right after the surgery. Igor put a rubber boot above the cast, and Kevin started working out in the deep water. Basketball-specific program was developed and implemented in the water and on land. Kevin loved to play basketball in the deep part of the pool. On the land, his program included practicing basketball with the exercise tubing attached to the belt around Kevin’s waist for added resistance. He was focused to restore his balance, coordination, flexibility, endurance, speed, and strength- all the essential elements in the Burdenko Method. Commitment to the program, discipline, and being organized, brought him back to the game much faster than a lot of people expected.
