Happy Wednesday everyone! Before we get on to WIAW, I wanted to give you all an update on my IT band problems. I got a free injury screening yesterday at Accelerated Rehab Centers. The woman who I saw could tell immediately from watching me walk and then just touching my hips what the problem was. I’ve always known that my whole body, shoulders, hips and legs, were a little “off,” meaning that one side of my body sits lower than the other. Well, she told me that because of this it’s making my right leg hit at an angle, and my left hip doesn’t rotate as it should when I walk/run. When she looked at my knee caps, you could visibly see how my right one is straight and my left one is angled. Winning.
Anyway, what does this mean? Well it means that once I get a referral from my physician for insurance purposes, I’ll be going in to see a physical therapist to try and correct some of my problems. I really don’t have much information beyond that, but she seemed to imply that I will be back to running, although I’ll see later on how this will affect my decision to do another marathon…
