First physical therapy today for my foot!
Friday, May 11, 2007
So this afternoon I had my first physical therapy for my plantar fasciitis. It went well but it had its moments when it was squirmingly painful!! So this is interesting. The physical therapist is not convinced that the pain in my foot is caused by plantar fasciitis. He thinks my back is somehow involved. He is still treating my heel pain but he is also going to try and fix my back. I m not sold on his diagnosis because I am very lucky and my back does not hurt. I told him that too! He tried all different kinds of exercises and things to try and make my back hurt, but nothing!! As long as the back treatment he does to me does not cause back pain down the road then he can continue down this path. The most important thing is that we get rid of the pain in my foot!! So he is going to treat me for the plantar fasciitis as well as the back, but he said he would not charge me for the back treatment. That last statement makes me think he honestly does believe the pain does originate from my back and that he is not doing this for the insurance money. Hopefully, I will be rid of the pain soon!! That is all that I really care about here!!
Otherwise, I have done really well with sticking to my meal plan. I know I add a few sweets here and there but I cannot live without my chocolate!! At least when I blow my max cals, I do not go over by too much or that frequently.
