Let me first say a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my hubby of over 20 years. I LOVE YOU!!
Have you ever heard of ASTYM as a PT treatment? Good golly…I am already bruising and he said it would do that and probably turn my leg black!! And, he also said it would be worse the 2nd time around, but as of the 3rd or 4th time it should get easier. I just have to say that it had better!! I am being treated for plantar fasciitis and also a torn achilles tendon (it was torn 9 years ago, but the doc didn’t do anything with it).
I pray that NO ONE that I know will have to have this done. It is so awful that they need to give a bullet to bite on.
Here’s how it goes:
Cocoa butter smeared from the bottom of your knee all the way to your toes (front and back of leg/foot). Then what feels like a metal scraper that you use for putting on spackle (but it’s clear acrylic and looks primeval) comes into play. They literally SCRAPE it up and down the front, back and sides of your leg and on the top and bottom of your foot. They are trying to break down the cross hatching of scar tissue and fluid trapped in the muscles.
Now, I also have fibromyalgia...so you can imagine how that felt to me!!
So, I have 2 next week and 2 the following week. This had better help is all I have to say!
Okay..done whining...whoops...not done yet...I also have had a migraine all day too. Joy oh joy!!
I’m making progress on the b/s on the stocking. I have all the brown done on the reindeer and I’m almost finished with the brown on the sleigh/santa. I will still have 4 more b/s colors to go. Maybe I can get some work done this weekend??
Have a great weekend everyone!!
