Second physio appointment yesterday. He was pleased with how things are going, which is good, and spent some more time working on my lower back. To me it just felt like he was pressing on bone, but every so often he'd press on a bit and say 'is that bit sore?' and I'd think 'yes! How did you know that bit would hurt when the bit right next to it was fine?'. It felt amazing afterwards when he asked me to bend backwards - I hadn't realised it was possible to bend that far back. Also, I don't know if I'm imagining it, but I think my weird wonky ribs are not quite as wonky as they were. It's like magic!
Still got to keep doing my exercises as much as I can, and back for another visit next week. Fingers crossed the magic continues and the pain starts to ease off.
Enjoy your running, wherever you're at
