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 923 – therapy

image
one of my goals heading into this year was to stay healthy and injury-free. my first physio checkup of the year; props to my body for making it out of january injury-free, or enough to stay functional and let me continue doing what i do. past couple days my body signalled something was misaligned and it was indeed correct. got my hip and knee fixed and a checkup for my finger and wrist. my body is getting better at spacing appointments further apart but physio warned my next checkup can’t be stretched out as far as this one

day 870 – check in with physio

image

physio needed to see me and i needed to see physio to assess and treat that finger and other banged up body parts of mine before he goes on vacation. i am very relieved when he said he’s almost certain it’s not a fracture and just a terrible sprain. although i am disappointed when he said i should still continue to wear the splint whenever possible. he didn’t even bother stopping me from doing my sports cause he knows me well enough to understand that’s not going to happen. the new kinesiologist shadowing today had little clue of what exercises i am usually given, so it was a chill day until the regular stepped in and changed all that. it’s the post physio blenz remedy i enjoy every time

day 729 – physio remedy

image

decided a little blenz remedy was necessary after finishing my morning physio. because of my ankle, didn’t have to do any prescribed exercises but still had to do muscle stim which is always a struggle. physio asked me to get some rays done for my foot and even wrote an interim report to my family doctor in case i skip out on the scans; he knows me far too well. getting realigned and released was important but also gave me some reassurance and peace of mind that i am going to be okay moving forward

day 654 – kinesiologist revisit

imagemorning physio and revisiting one of the kinesiologist i have seen years ago but haven’t seen at the clinic in ages cause it’s been a long time since i last had a saturday appointment. but nothing really changes since both my kins are alike in some sense, except one challenges me more and the other makes fun of me more. the same routine applies: he gives me an exercise and i will complain momentarily, he doesn’t budge then i go off and do it. it was an easy day comparative to other visits, but muscle stim is never easy. got my back beaten up because it is so tight from all that throwing and lifting

day 566 – physio at his best

image

physio had his radar on me the entire morning and went crazy today pushing me hard and maxing out my leg. said he was on a mission to push my left leg to match the other because he’s simply not satisfied that i am settling. upon hearing that, my kinesiologist was on my back because physio faulted him for not working me hard enough. physio also discussed my mri report to confirm results came back negative. the good news is nothing broken and nothing torn, the not so good news is he has the green light to hurt me in any possible way to fix whatever is wrong with me

take no excuses

image my leg was burning and could not muster another rep so i turned to my kinesiologist and said i am exhausted. he in turn stared at me with little compassion and told me i must tank it and keep going no matter what my body feels. every now and then, he would look over to check on me and tell me not to slack off because he knows me far too well. over the many years, the kins that worked with me knows exactly what i do to get out of doing things i consider difficult. i guess i have developed a slacker reputation and one that will stick with me for as long as i live. they no longer concede to any of my excuses or complaints because know that i give up too easily and only stay within my comfort zone. in other words, unless i puke, faint or die on the spot, i must keep going because he isn’t decreasing the reps or weight. and in at the end i survived it all and knew i had done something right for once. he told me he believed i was strong enough and forced me to find a way to tough it out, all i needed was a push. i’ll take that compliment with me and think about it at home. he also said that training is meant to be hard so to push me to my limit because it’s all about overcoming weaknesses. if the training was easy, i would be cheating myself. thankfully he hadn’t conceded to my whining otherwise i would have taken the easy way out for the two hundred thousandths time
