I gotta say...I've been enjoying physical therapy. Everything they say makes so much sense and I am not only seeing but feeling the difference in how my legs, abs, and back feel. My what was feeling like constant lower back pain has improved so much- it's only occasional now and I have some methods to help it.
So yeah...I guess you figured out my tennis elbow is flaring again. SIGH. After a long discussion with my physical therapist to try to see if there was a trigger that casued it to come back, she identified a possible issue being moving from my full body strength training to a more machine based workout I've been doing with Upinder. Hmmm....so lifting heavy is supposed to be the "cure all" for tennis elbow, huh? Yeargh, yeah no. Well, I haven't been lifting heavy as a friend told me I MUST do because supposedly it is the only way to fix my injury (BULL CRAP). But, I have been lifting on mostly machines which I've never focused on before and don't really like. Initially it was feeling better and not causing any pain but Barb thinks moving away from full body movements could have further inhibited my progress in healing. She's suggesting seeing the sports med doc again and getting MRIs of both elbows. We will see....
Have you ever struggled with a sports injury? What injury was it and how did you deal with it?
