At lunch time today I set off to the physio, typically the ankle seemed a lot better!
After a discussion about symptoms it was up on the treatment table. I felt like a terrible fraud as the physio prodded, poked and manipulated, none of it hurt, but he assured me he could feel thickening in my ankle and diagnosed Achilles tendonitis (no surprise there).
It was then on to a brief massage, some heat treatment, then laser therapy followed by some taping up, so with a go faster blue strip down the back of my leg I now look like a professional athlete and am the envy of Madam! I left lighter in the foot and wallet with a list of exercises to do.
Never once did he say the dreaded words ‘Don’t run the Grizzly’ (this might have something to do with the fact he sponsors the event!) he was very positive that I could get round and an appointment has been made for next week as like Humpty Dumpty I might very well need ‘putting back together again’ and I believe ‘all the kings horses and all the kings men’ are busy!
