I visited the sport’s medicine doctor yesterday. We’re still unsure what is wrong with my right knee. He thinks it might be because my left leg is a little teeny tiny bit longer than the right. (I’m hot.) Either way, the right thigh muscle is sensitive to the touch. It’s also super tight. He showed me some exercises to work on and told me to focus on standing on all four points of my feet (as seen in Mountain Pose for all you yogis out there). Apparently, I stand on the outsides of both feet and the inside of my legs are weak because of it. I also run with bad form because of this impurity.
I have another appointment with him next week to discuss my shoes, how I run (he’ll put me on a treadmill), and physical therapy. He also wants to give me acupuncture, which leads me to my question: Has anyone out there ever had it done? Know anyone who has? How does it feel? Is it painful at first? Does it work? Any and all information will help me out. I’m nervous now.
