Another injury blog. Fun. My ITB is feeling yesterdays 120 min workout big time. I am set to start PT on my ITB once again tomorrow. They are going to try some electro stimulation and ultrasound to see if it helps. If not, I may need another steroid injection. Not happy about this but we will wait and see what happens. I am using the Grid foam roller but today my ITB is worse than it has been in a long time. Not sure why.
I am hoping a good massage will help and so I have a deep tissue scheduled for later today. I am going to try and get some stretching in the steam room while at the gym, the heat always helps so much before or after a massage. I have been icing today and just took a super hot bath before stretching and it seems to be doing a bit better but not where it needs to be.
How I long for the day where I can go a full month and NOT post a single blog about my knee or ITB. I am staying motivated and positive knowing that in time it will get better. I really hope the new PT does a good job. I was in PT back before I was pregnant but my Ortho wants me to try a new place. He says it is great as they work with athletes. Will be sure and report back tomorrow how it goes. My apt is at 9 am so I will either be screaming in pain by 10 or happy as a bird! We will see!!!
So today, no working out, just yoga, stretching and foam rolling. Here's hoping there is a light at the end of the tunnel.........
