Today was my 3rd actual rehab session and you know what the agenda was . . .
#1) Scraping (ohhh how that tickles to the point of torture and hurts to near tears -all wrapped up in one big scraping party!)
#2) Manual tissue manipulation - kind of like a massage, but definitely NOT. Today, she decided to go up my calf just to make sure it was all good - and OUCH, she found a spot just below my knee on my upper left calf - the therapist pressed on that exact spot for like 2 straight hours (okay, exaggeration, but still it was seriously like 10 minutes . . . she swears she wasn't crushing some vital artery - though, I'm skeptical!!! Kidding - I'm sure these delightfully painful sessions are all going to pay off in being PF free some day soon!!!
#3) Taping - tomorrow, "C" and I are planning on running 12 miles (on a hilly course) so my therapist thought it would be a good idea to tape it to see how it may affect my pain level during the run. She's actually taped it for me before - but this will be a much better comparison. I didn't take a photo of it until I got home at which time, Pacer thought "hmm, what is this on your foot mom - I gotta smell it!!!"
