Don't get me wrong, I'm a big supporter of physio and it helped after a keyhole knee operation 6 years ago. It's just that lately, every time I ran I got a tight calf and the pain seemed to move around but was always there in some form. Well, I moved from treadmill to the road - much better for times, not so good for injuries. My ankle popped and is now sore several times a day though other times I forget about it.
So, do i fork out enough for a pair of new calf compression guards or a session of physio that tells me to rest up, ice the area several times a day, compress the area and elevate it... I can get that from RW magazine.
Have people been pleasantly surprised by physio going beyond what they thought possible - am conscious I could be guilty of thinking I know it all by reading a few articles, but we take the articles as being accurate, right?
