Ironman and triathlete Hannah DePaul has a passion for helping people with active lifestyles achieve their goals, improve performance, and return to the activities and sports they enjoy. Her treatment philosophy focuses on using manual therapy techniques, trigger-point dry needling, and the appropriate functional exercise prescription to address impairments and restore normal, pain-free movement.
Hannah competed in the Olympic Trials in swimming as an undergrad at the University of Michigan, where she was also a member of the Varsity Swim Team. She received her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Duke University in 2013 and was a proud member of Duke’s Triathlon Club.
In 2013, Hannah completed her first Ironman triathlon at Lake Placid in July 2013 and went on to compete at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. She has won numerous triathlons in Michigan and competed in the 2017 Ironman World Championships.
Prior to relocating back home to Michigan, Hannah gained experience in treating endurance athletes and postoperative athletes at North Carolina Central University. She also worked at
an outpatient orthopedic clinic in Durham, North Carolina.
When not in the clinic helping her patients or training for her next race, Hannah enjoys spending time with her husband, family, and friends, being outside, and being a die-hard Michigan fan.
