I had my 2nd PT session on Tuesday morning - yep, more scrapping. It was a lot more painful this time, but still - it's very do-able. It's uncomfortable - not really so much PAIN. It helps to know that there are only about 20 scrapes in each direction on each spot . . . it's still about 40 minutes of it though. After the scrapping, then there is a short ultrasound session which doesn't really feel like anything. Then, with the aide of a belt, a long stretch.
As part of my job, yesterday I had to stand for about 4 hours on a concrete floor. It made my heel hurt considerably. The 2nd half of the day, I was able to sit and dropped my heel off a step so it was stretched for about 90 minutes. When I got home, besides being exhausted - my heel hurt. This morning, I woke up to ZERO first step pain. Woot Woot! Regretfully, my work duties had me standing on the concrete floor all day once again. So after a glimmer of hope from a pain free first step this morning, it's back to killing me this afternoon.
More PT on the schedule for tomorrow morning. Stay tuned.
