Today I went to see a physiotherapist and apparently I have just niggled myÂ achilles sleeve not the actual tendon, so after some ultra soundÂ Â and massage the advice was to rest it and stretch it.
Try a 4 mile run the week of the Gear race, see how I get on, then make myÂ decision!
Resting it really means no walking either but that is imposible so we shall just have to wait and see how I get on, but at least its only a matter of time 🙂
Its most likely been caused by my over worked andÂ exhaustedÂ Hamstring muscles, so I need to work onÂ strengthening my Gluteal and Quadricep Muscles, as well as stretching my Hamstrings.
Maybe giving up yoga and the gym was not a good thing to do !
InterestinglyÂ the physiotherapist’s opinion on having a massage was that it would ease my muscles for a short time but not correct the problem.
So massages are very useful then 🙂 and certainly better than taking Nurofen etc which also only ease the pain for a short time 🙂
Regular massages are very very useful as you should no more than anyone, and maybe if i could practise what i preach my legs would not be in this painful mess 🙁
