2012 Olympics: A Quick Progress Update


It’s been a rough couple of weeks.

I injured my knee during my first outdoor competition on 4/21/12 in California. Immediately after the competition, I went to get treatment.

Every day, I go to Dr. Josh Glass at Georgia Sports Chiropractic here in Atlanta. He does ultrasounds, active release, light therapy, Kinesio tape, pneumatic compression, electrical muscle stimulant, and many other methods.  He is the best chiropractor in the nation. He will also be a part of the Olympic Medical Team.  He has helped many athletes achieve gold medals so I am happy to be in good hands.

I am happy and grateful to have him on my team because I may compete in New York on June 9th depending on how my knee feels. It is for a big pre-Olympic competition. Hopefully, I will be feeling great. I’m also doing pilates and yoga to help me stretch my muscles in my quads and hamstrings. I also work out in the sand to reduce some stress of the pounding on my knees. I hope all of this hard work pays off in the end.

I am both anxious and nervous all at the same time about competing again because it seems like I have been sitting out for a while. And I’m nervous because I don’t want to compete badly because of my knee.

  1. I can only imagine how important your knees are in high jump. It sounds like you’re in terrific hands with Dr. Glass. That knee won’t let you down in New York – I bet it will be stronger than ever. Keep up the hard work and we’ll all be thinking knee-strengthening thoughts. Good luck!

  2. Keith, we are thinking of you and praying for a safe and quick recovery! Good Luck!

  3. Hope you heal soon!
    Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!

  4. Oh no, Keith!! I so sorry to hear about your knee. I hope it heals quickly for you!

  5. Keith – tell Mark Mares to quit making you move heavy equipment! We are all wishing good thoughts for you Keith!

  6. Keith, can you help us out in the travel nursing division? Maybe get an RN to work on your knee or something? I’m sure Dr. Glass is awesome but we don’t place Chiropractors. Best of luck in the upcoming meet!

  7. June 9th is just around the corner. Does this mean you may not be able to compete in the hotly contested annual Soliant Kick Ball contest??
    If not, I think a shot at being on the Olympic team is a pretty good excuse.
    Good luck Keith…we will be pulling for you!!

  8. Keith – just keep the focus. Sounds like you’re in great hands! We’re behind you, here in Tampa!
