Bryce at Pro-active in Vancouver has been such a help and positive support in my recovery. And it is working.
Today he massaged my IT band until it actually felt GOOD (and yes, there was a lot of pain before that happened). He used laser on the knee for awhile; the TENS unit (on high) during foot presses on a machine where I laid on my back. There was new exercises to add to my clamshells. Then he taped my knee for me again AND showed me how to have my husband do it between appointments.
THANK YOU BRYCE!
I am ready for my hard/long run tomorrow morning in Portland, running through town UP HILL to Forest Park.
