After my last Dear Diary, I had a friend ask if I was seeing a physio for my knee. I explained to her that I’ve recently become entirely disheartened with physios & podiatrists, so no, I wasn’t seeing one for this. After seeing them for a lifetime for all sorts of things, this recent bout of knee issues has seen me burn through 3 physios and a hell of a lot of money without any real results (I stuck each one out for long enough, I promise!). I had 3-4 fat pad impingement in the last year, and the advice I was getting was all about treatment, as opposed to how to avoid it happening in the first place. It totally screwed up my running (try running with a fat pad injury – it’s agony!), I stopped horse riding and packed on a bit of weight from not physically being able to do the activities that took up the majority of my fitness schedule, and it all really got me down.So when this happened, I decided to try and tackle the imaging side of things first, which I did. But my mate who I mentioned earlier has convinced me to give physios/podiatrists another go.
So when this new issue occurred I decided to try and tackle the imaging side of things first, which I did. But my mate who I mentioned earlier has convinced me to give physios/podiatrists another try, and has recommended one to me that a running friend of hers has had great success with. It’s with Matt Bull at Up & Running Podiatry in Ripponlea tomorrow, so I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes!
