ilanarama: Mountain can has santa hat! (mountain santa)
[personal profile] ilanarama
After my third massage, things were leveling out, so on Sunday I decided to make another try at running. And by "running" I mean "jogging at two minutes per mile slower than my usual easy pace," but it did not feel that great, and the next day I was hurting again.

So I threw in the towel and went to a physical therapist, which, maybe I should have done it sooner, but I was hoping that rest would take care of things, and obviously it didn't. They think that the tight knot in my butt should resolve with dry needling (which sounds terribly scary, but I have it scheduled for Monday) and at that point they can address the hip imbalance they feel is the source of all my troubles (hamstring, ITB, peroneal tendons). We shall see.

Also, it's December, which means it's time for Vestal Peak to put on the Santa hat!

Dang it!! Glad you went to a PT. That's usually my last choice, but they seem to be experts...
Hope you are all squared up soon!!

Acupuncture, which is dry needling's ancestor, fixed up my glute issue in one session despite my enormous scepticism. There's still no physiological reason or evidence why it should have worked but the effect was huge and fairly long-lasting.

It's good enough for world-class athletes, at least when they're in The Indian Ocean hundreds of miles from land:
