That darn yoga! (Injury update)
Tuesday, January 25, 2011
okay, eating was once again beyond ridiculous today.
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
. 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!!!!!
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!!!
