My appointment with the Sports Injury doctor was interesting to say the least. Talk about cut and dry and to the point. He'd ask a question, you'd answer, if it wasn't an immediate answer he would then ask "then why are you doing it?"
how exactly did you hurt your knee?
I hurt it while out running
the question was, how exactly did you hurt your knee?
I was on one of my longer runs, it was cold and rainy and my S.I. Joint tightened up causing my knee to lock.
why do you think the S.I. joint was the problem?
well, I've been having trouble with my S.I. joint since the fall and I've been seeing my chiropractor.
why are you seeing the chiropractor?
because, (see above)
what are they doing to help this problem?
I've been having adjustments and doing some stretches.
are you really doing your stretches, what are you doing for core strengthening? what are you doing for your pelvic floor?
oh, some stretches and some yoga.....(voice becoming a little more meek)
why exactly are you running?
because I like it?????
what else are you doing for your S.I. Joint and knee
going to the chiropractor, stretching and putting traummel s on my knee swelling....????
you spelled traumeel incorrectly on your form!!
sorry.... : (
You get my drift. He then had me walk on my toes and then on my heels, and do squats. Ouch...
Then up onto the table where he checked my left knee, who knew your leg could go in that direction and return without permanent damage! Well, next was my right knee, he kept moving it in directions it just didn't want to go, as I'm clinging to the examination table he kept saying, relax your knee, I'm trying, relax your knee.
I'm trying to, but I have trust issues!!!
Needless to say, we got through the exam, I was sent for more xrays, because the set of xrays done by the nurse practitioner were not correct (go figure).
I go back to Dr. No Nonsense on Wednesday with the new xrays and until then I'll be working on my core and pelvic floor strengthening exercises.
Hopefully by Wednesday I'll know why I want to run and I've become a better speller!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
Oh, Dr. No said I can't run right now, but I can do anything as long as it doesn't hurt. Hope my next appointment doesn't hurt!
