so, as you know, i had my first physical therapy appointment last friday.
and it went a little something like this:
chit chatting with the physical therapist.
rubbing/"stretching out" my IT band with my physical therapists FIST.
lots and lots of pain and sweating and pain.
electrodes and cold packs.
and by that night, it looked a little something like this:
yikes. i just kept saying it felt like my legs were completely bruised. so that night before bed, when i finally had a chance to look at my legs....indeed. bruises. on both legs. not cool.
yesterday i had my second session. and as soon as i walked in and showed my therapist my bruises, he's like 'oh yeah, didn't i tell you it'd do that??'. i was like um no! and then he proceeded to rub along my IT band again. it felt great. really great. and today i have more, new bruising on top of my old, now yellowish bruises. it's good times! oh and i get to go back tomorrow for more!!!
this therapy thing better work..........that's all i'm sayin.
