To The Sports Doctor!
My right thigh muscle and achilles have been feeling a but tight lately. I decided it was time to see the sports doctors to make sure they both were a-ok. I didn’t want to get halfway through my training to find out that I injured myself more.
The doctor examined my thigh and achilles. Pressed and moved it in different ways to see if it hurt at all. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary. He then x-rayed both knees to see if the bones and muscles looked different from each another. There was a little bit of swelling in my right thigh muscle, but nothing he was concerned about.
I’m thinking, “Great! He didn’t find anything. Am I going crazy?” So he prescribed physical therapy for 4-6 weeks, 2 times a week for “an aggressive stretching program” to loosen up the muscles and told me to take Advil twice a day.
The BIG question that I had for the doctor…Can I still run?! He said I should be fine since it doesn’t hurt when I run.
Hopefully the tightness will be gone in a few weeks! after the physical therapy sessions.
