Swell Time

Moving forward, just not sure where we're going, but at least we're having a swell time when we do it.

You call that a massage?

After several weeks of visiting the physical therapist I now have an aversion to a deep tissue massage. I rarely go out and pay someone to manually loosen my muscles and on the occasion that I have it has been a relatively pleasant experience. But after getting my calf worked on I now cringe when I hear the word massage.

 

The latest massage resulted in immense pain, hitting a nerve (literally), and bruising.

Fun, right? So where I sign up for another one?

 

I can’t complain too much because if we don’t work out the knots and tightness it puts extra strain on the tendon that has a partial tear.

 

However, the next time someone suggest a massage, I might have to pass because I don’t want to have physical therapy flashbacks when I am supposed to be relaxing.

    So how does that feel after a couple of days? They say that after a deep tissue massage there may be some bruising but it is worth it.

    • It really loosened things up. There is still some tightness leading into the peroneal tendon, but it is getting better.
