Has anyone ever had the above, not the one with the roller but when the physio uses gentle manipulation of the muscles/ Myofacial sheath to root out the cause of your pain.
I thought i had shin splints but today i discovered that i ahd scar tissue from a knock that i sustained to my calf, cant recall injuring it.
I experienced some strange sensations which were all very pleasant(not something you associate with physio's ) so the telling time will be when i go for a run tommorrow, if it has worked then i will know instantaneously as the pain should be gone or minimal, and do you know what that means.
After 2 weeks of not running, my Edinburgh marathon will be back on and hopefully with a decent time, fingers crossed.
Hi Mark, I use myofascial release techniques regularly with good effect. Very effective for trigger points too.
You can't beat a professional doing it, but for DIY treatments get a foam roller and... s l o w l y.... roll over any tight spots until you feel the tissue soften and release. Great for quads, ITB and calves
