Update. Non-linear.

It’s been almost two weeks since I’ve blogged.  In fact, I’ve only blogged once this month.  Shame on me.

A lot has happened in that time and I can’t even begin to remember it all.  So you’ll be getting updates in a non-linear fashion.  Hope you all can keep up.

I had my first Physical Therapy appointment today.  You might recall that I hurt my hip running and the doctor ordered me to run on it so I could be in some pain.  I did.  And I was.  He determined that my pain wasn’t really my hip at all.  It is enthesopathy (inflammation) of the lower abdominal muscles (read: I have weak abs, no surprise here!) He prescribed physical therapy 2x/week for 6 weeks.

My appointment today was a lot of assessment, but I think I’m going to like it.  They did this cool electrode thing where they put two pads on my skin and connected them with wires that looked like mini jumper cables. It’s supposed to push the medicine into my system instead of having to give me a shot.  Score.

The physical therapist was really nice and she’s training for a half-marathon in February, so we talked about running.  She also gave me some ab exercises to do at home.  If nothing else, at least I’ll get some core work in.  It might be expensive, but it’s sorta like having a personal trainer, right??

  1. I’ve done the PT thing lots of times with the cortisone on the electrode thing…and it’s so late I can’t think of the name of it…but it really helped!

    Hope you’re feeling better soon, and able to run again!

  2. at least you know what it is and how to fix it. you can only get better now.

  3. thanks, guys… I guess I should’ve mentioned that I’m cleared for running again. As long as it doesn’t hurt.

    Now, I just have to get back in the HABIT… ;)
