Ouch - Damn Physio's!

justalby justalAug 8th 2012
Well, I went to the physio yesterday to let him work on my knee injury... Who'd have thought massage an Myofascial release on an IT Band could hurt so much. I was almost in tears!

Time to buy a foam roller though and do some work on it myself as I'm not paying good money for someone to hurt me that much when I can do it myself at home!

Yep sports massage can make grown men cry. I've always wanted to try one of those ridgy type rollers, which one are you going for?

Just a cheap plain one for now - Maybe once I'm used to that I'll go for a 'rumble roller' but that just looks far too painful at the moment!

Started with the foam roller now and it does seem to be hurting a little less each day - Either the foam roller is getting softer, I'm getting used to the pain or its actually doing some good. It still isn't exactly comfortable though!
