  • "In the past I had hired aggressive personal trainers and I came out of every session a beaten puppy. After a few weeks I became very stiff and began having blood circulation issues, my cardiologist at Columbia Presbyterian sent me to the Wharton Performance Clinic. You see, I have a very serious physical impairment, and its called being 70 years old. After a few sessions this work became the only medicine I know" NPR Interview

  • “I was certain that nothing was ever going to cure the pain in my neck and give me range of motion. Meeting with Phil Wharton was an absolute godsend. I have the utmost respect for the Whartons.”

  • Genius Experience!  Jim Wharton "gets" bodies. Though there are certain exercises in the framework of the system it is far from formulaic. Jim spent 2.5 hours working with my injuries and tweaked/customized the exercises to fit my particular situation. After months of pain I left feeling dramatically better -- I realized I was singing when I got to the street!
    Ellie St. Denis,
  • Jim Wharton and Wharton Performance were an incredible find for me. I am someone who has been battling muscle and joint problems along with injuries for a good portion of my life. One session with Jim and I feel not only a huge difference in my flexibility but hope that I can do this without medication and all it's side effects. Jim is an encyclypedia of wisdom related to the anatomy and the answer to good health the right way! I know for myself I am sold on this method with Jim Wharton!  
    Nancy Reif, Consultant
  • "After three marathons in the past year, culminating in the Beijing Olympic Games, I was ready for a good break. Subsequently, after two weeks of not running I was in much need of some therapy. I spent a week with Tom Nohilly at the Wharton Performance Center going through their unique flexibility and strengthening techniques. I am now feeling ready for the hard training for my next marathon. Their method is simple, yet brilliant. Isolating the specific muscles used for my sport that are in much need of strengthening. I am confident that if I apply the techniques I have learned it will greatly increase the longevity of my career. I feel blessed to have the Wharton's and everyone at the clinic as friends." 
    Ryan Hall, Olympian
  • "Jim Wharton is special. He understands all the important aspects of musculoskeletal pathology. As a physician, I can comfortably say he knows human anatomy better than most orthopedic surgeons. By way of example, Jim not only has an understanding of the insertion and attachment ligaments, tendons and connective tissues, he also understands how multiple tissue layers are aligned and oriented about the inner skeletal support system." I have been going to see Jim for over a year. Perhaps the best testament to his skill and expertise is that I need him far less than I did one year ago and have developed the needed skills to not only maintain a healthy physical condition but also improve my musculoskeletal health. Above and beyond his level of competence are his demeanor and the way he interacts with with his patients and friends alike."
    Dr. Stewart Schecter, MD. Cardiologist
  • The best thing that's happened to me during my running career was being able to be treated By Jim and Phil Wharton. Their stretching therapy has helped me recover faster from injuries and from my stressful training. With their therapy I am able to train better due to increases in my level of flexibility and strength. I have captured 2 World Record's in marathons (2h05:42/2h05:38) while in the care of Jim and Phil Wharton. This is a stretching technique that I will never stop receiving during my career.
