It was during this time that Dr. McNally became certified in ART, began treating at Ironman events and began training for triathlons herself.

During her last year of school Dr. McNally worked as a personal trainer at New York Sports Club. She adopted a functional movement perspective of training and rehabilitation. She also completed her first Half Ironman, Timberman 70.3, during that year.

After trying several chiropractors, to no avail, Dr. Ellen McNally has helped me find relief from my back pain. From the initial visit to my discharge, Dr. McNally had always taken her time with me to figure out the best way to give me releif from my back pain. Not only did she manipulate my spine but she also did ART (active Release Technique) which I have found to be a key element that has enabled me to feel better. Dr. Mcnally worked along with my physical therapist to help me achieve my pain free goal. I cannot thank her enough. I would highly recommend her to all of my family and friends.
