I’ve gone to three sessions of PT so far now, and it’s going well. I’ve been diligently doing my exercises and stretches at home. My basement is starting to look like a mini gym with the various bands, weights, and foam rollers that I’m collecting!
My hip has felt sore or fatigued from all the work, but strangely it also feels like it’s getting stronger. It hasn’t really hurt during running. It actually feels uncomfortable most often when I’m sitting with my legs at a bad angle – in my car, in my desk chair at work (my feet don’t rest flat on the ground), on the couch with my feet up on the coffee table – or laying down with that leg bent slightly to the side.
I need to increase my running frequency and see how it handles that.
I’ve got five more PT sessions, and I assume that somewhere in that process we’ll reevaluate where I’m at.
On a side note, I’d love to work in this PT facility! It’s like a combination doctor’s office/gym. I’d love to learn all the biomechanics necessary to diagnose a patient’s problem, suggest the best treatment plan for them, and then walk them through the steps to recovery. Cool job!
