Sorry, I know everyone asks about knees
Jane, its what you know I suppose, when I had my problems I went to several Osteo's and well to say they were a waste of money is an understatement but its same as anything some are good some not so, I fianally got sorted by a Mctiminy Chiropractor (SUPERB) for one of the sessions with the Osteo he simply put electrodes on my back and left me there for 15 mins trust me it doesnt do anything about having your right leg half inch longer than your left cos my pelvis had dropped, which is what had bought about the ITBS, look around and most important listen to other people.
Good job I don't have any carpet then. Ho hum, Yes I saw some videos for other parts of the body. I tried it on my calves which have historically been rather tight though at the moment they seem to be reasonably ok. I'd like them to stay that way.
Once I get the tracking on my knee sorted I hope to be able to run again. I have plenty to keep me going through the winter months.
Eeeek - resistance bands. Be very careful, see a physio before using one. Get the correct exercises.
I use a resistance band, however after spraining my knee I discovered that one of the exercises that I was doing was actually agrevating it. Trouble is, you only find out afterward.
Well, I tried to go for a run this weekend and now both my knees hurt. A lot. I think I need to admit defeat and go to a physio.
Classybird, I sympathise This is the first time I've ever been for a run and ended up feeling worse afterwards than before! Had to happen some time I guess.
Poor classybird. I don't know the answer...
I've got a physio appt on thursday. At the moment my knees don't feel too bad, cos I haven't run since Sat. I'm wondering whether I should go for a run tomorrow, just so I have some symptoms? Or is that stupid?
Oh Swerve! It's like having an angel and a devil on my shoulders, listening to you & classybird... But I have to admit you are sensible.
I've just had to move the physio to Monday anyway. So that's 2 reasons to stop being an idiot.
