#135 - Four Steps Forward, Two Steps Back.

Thursday, June 13, 2013

Guess what?!

I'm a walking girl again! Soon, I'll be running! emoticon

My sister-in-law, a chiropractor, suggested I go see my chiropractor since it seemed like my foot was getting worse. Yesterday, I headed to his office to see if there was anything he could do, and to my surprise, he had me walking out the door!

Basically, when the dresser drawer fell on my foot, it knocked it out of alignment. With some tugging, he adjusted it to where it was supposed to be. He knew it was this because I've actually been having a LOT of ankle pain and swelling. Since he did all that tugging, he knew it was not fractured or else, I would have been screaming! Yay for no fracture! emoticon

However, I do have Plantar Fasciitis (PF) because of the boot. It had gotten so bad that it hurt to walk. He adjusted that too, and it felt 95% better. Like I said, I walked right out of that office.

I went home an soaked it in warm Epsom salt water and immediately iced it afterwards as he suggested. This morning, it's a bit stiff and sore where the PF is/was. Also, it's a little painful on the top. However, I think with the Epsom salt soak and the ice regiment, it'll heal in a few days, but I will speak with him more about it tomorrow as I have another appointment. Hopefully, I will be running (walk/runs) in a couple of weeks. I'm going to start walking more when I get the permission.

So, my foot progress is my four steps forward. My two steps back? I think I might have a touch of a stomach virus or food poisoning. During the night, I woke up to a bad stomach ache. I felt like I was going to be sick. I'm feeling a little better this morning, but there's still an uneasy feeling there. With lots of water and healthy foods, hopefully, I will be feeling better soon.

    So sorry to hear that you are feeling bad this morning, but I am so glad to hear that your foot is getting better! PF is so painful; I didn't even realize there was a cure for it! I think you are doing a fantastic job! You are definitely an inspiration! emoticon

    This is why chiros are awesome. Regular doctors would just give you pain meds instead of actually FIXING THE PROBLEM.

You're gonna be feeling great in no time!!!!
