That darn yoga! (Injury update)

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

okay, eating was once again beyond ridiculous today.
MOVING on..

Work didnt last as long as usual today (woo hoo!) so I was able to swing by my uncles office (hes a chiropractor) and have him figure out my hip/knee issue.

He ended up doing a laser thing on my knee, and then checked out my hip. He said yoga made it go WAAAY out and NO MORE YOGA! That darn yoga!!! He said that if I kept running the way it was I would have done SERIOUS DAMAGE to myself emoticon. He popped my hip back, and I walked around a bit. The knee is still super sore and he said will probably be SORE tomorrow, but wants me to come BACK into the office tomorrow and once again on friday. I also was told to buy this herb called Arnica and take it 3x/day. Then, I have to ice the knee daily and prop it up on a pillow, put rolled up towels behind my low back and neck and keep it that way until I fall asleep. BUT, he said I should be just fine to run the marathon - PHEW!!!!! emoticon He also said to swim for the week to help with endurance without having to run.

That was a close call. I'm glad I was able to go in tonight and see him instead of having to put it off 'one more day'. I could feel how lose my knee was and today I was limping all day long, so I knew it was serious business. Didnt realize just HOW serious though!

Lets all pray that its a speedy recovery like it should be, and that it is truly better by marathon time! Uncle said I should be just fine and even STRONGER by then.

That darn yoga!!!

    I never heard of anyone harming themselves doing yoga before. Glad your uncle is a chiropractor. How handy is that??!

    That sucks that your eating is crazy right now - no fun.

    However, very cool that your uncle was able to help you. It never hurts to have a relative in medicine!

    Ummm.. Are you sure you are supposed to take the arnica, not just apply it to your injury as a poltice? It is a very dangerous herb to take internally. It really should only be used as a rub. It works great when applied to the skin at the site of soft tissue injuries, but taken orally it can cause heart irregularities and even death. Be very careful. Do not make an oral preparation yourself! Get one from a homeopathic doctor. Dosing is tricky. It has been used as a poison!

    I am a bit af an herbalist and your post made me very nervous!

    Yoga sure can stretch things out. It is awfully hard approaching a big event like a marathon balancing what to do and what not to do. You are really stressing your body--hopefully just to the point where you recover and get stronger.

    Take care and good luck on your marathon.

    Now I KNOW you're going to be just fine for that marathon. Sounds like you're in good hands!
