Recovering From an Injury on the Comeback Trail

Thursday, December 14, 2017

Well, I injured my right foot a couple of days ago! emoticon Yes, yes and during the food filled holidays. So I had the exact same injury last August and that's when I decided to see the Dr. and after some prodding from my Spark Friends. emoticon Saw the doctor and he said I need to replace my orthotics with new ones. I didn't replace them soon enough. emoticon Gotta check these things out! emoticon Y'know when you say "Yeah, later, later..." Well, don't do that. Take care of it now. I feel much better today. Recovery was faster this time around than last time. I think it's because I've been doing ankle physiotherapy exercises that I've continued to do after I saw the physiotherapist a few years back for the past month. AND I've iced it: Ten minutes ice on, then minutes off, for 3x so it would take 30 mins. I did that twice the day i went to the doctor's office and I decided to stretch the ankle with rotations a couple of times throughout the day. Extra Strength tylenol helps with swelling, inflammation and not just pain. Brings it down. Still some stiffness and minor pain today not as much as last time. Hoping to tackle resistance training with the band and bike if you don't see me with my Fitbit reports on the Community Feed emoticon DON'T GIVE UP THE SHIP! emoticon Honestly, I was snacking on Christmas snacks in my physical state and no cardio...Not a wise decision. I'll just follow you guys and be healthy! emoticon Here's to being Healthy over the Holidays emoticon emoticon Merry Christmas and all the best for 2018! Looking forward to SparkPeople 2018! emoticon

    I hope that you are feeling better since it has been two weeks since the injury. I can relate to the frustration of healing and waiting..... I hope this new year brings you lots of happiness and peace. God bless you and have a wonderful week. emoticon

    Keep up the good work with your exercise. Mine is my knees. I try to do hip/knee PT every other day. And when I hurt I always ate now I treat it with PT and Tylenol.

    I hope you and yours have a CHRISTMAS and NEW YEAR is full of LOVE and JOY!

    Good catch with the orthotics,
    take care and get well soon!

    I'm sure you still remember your healthy eating skills, and you can get back on track any time you want.

    I am glad it was a simple solution. I did not know that about orthotics either. On reflection that makes sense though. I hope that your ankle heals quickly, so you can run from those pesky Christmas goodies. Or at least work some of it off.
