day 2036 – physio visit

my ankle was obviously not in good working form so getting it checked up because i can’t afford to have any time off. the faster i fix it, the faster i’m on the roundoff back tucks again. the reason i love my physio is he’s good at what he does – fixing my injuries since highschool. he knows me so well that every time i visit, he would work his magic on my many failing body parts and get me back to my sports in a jiffy. this was time no different. it’s amazing how much better my ankle felt after he did some adjustments

day 1547 – lorraine replicas 

i came out to complete team lorraine as part of the dress up halloween wednesday. all i had to do with show up and my teammates brought the props to me. i know that i’ll always have my obyf teammates cheering me on, even when i’m the one on the sideline. their support for me and the team spirit they bring has been a difference maker during my coping time. i can’t wait to be back on the court with these neon guys, but i fear my chances of returning before this season ends is slim

day 300 – deja vu

image

just as i thought my knee has turned the corner and fitted back in its groove, it pops back out of place. completely abused by my physio’s physical manipulation while he forcefully pushes it back into place. him at his best continually pushing my pain tolerance. restrictions order in effect that physical activity is not permitted and permission of activities must be granted. it’s also my 300th day post to date

day 297 – knee crapped out

image

once again, back again to find out what’s wrong with my leg. started feeling random discomfort last night which soon turned to numbness and eventually to immobility. little did i know i went through last night’s class running, kicking and jumping with a dislodged knee cap. the time when I turn to physio to rescue my body. he has given me strict orders to stay off it for next two days with no activities and continue to ice regularly until he sees me again

day 281 – nice view

image

the scenic view overlooking false creek towards downtown. cloudy skies until it started coming down just like the typical vancouver weather. at the clinic today doing some usual fix up and fine tuning to make sure everything works as well as it could before i leave town for competition out east

day 247 – stocked up

image

safe to say i am stocked up and set for the next two months. sprained my ankle multiple times this week and almost sprained it again today but tape saved my life from making further damage. can’t get a hold of my physio but somehow gotta get myself fixed up for the last stretch

day 201 – back on track

today is a good day as my physio cleared me to resume light activities and training in preparation for competition. my eyes glowed and my heart exploded with joy when he broke the news to me. pleasantly surprised my physio got me back on my feet so quickly, i can’t thank my physio and kinesiologist enough for everything but i take some credit since i had to listen to stay put, work hard at rehab and do all those dorsiflexions. the best news in a week along with glimpse of sunshine in the afternoon
