day 687 – morning physio

image

stumbled into the clinic still in half sleeping mode and physio was quick to take note. he figured giving me a bunch of crazy exercise was going to wake me up and increase my alertness. another stint on the muscle stim after a tiring routine, makes me believe that i will be doing muscle stim forever and ever. important visit today because i had messed up my knee and groin and needed to get that fixed heading towards montreal

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 615 – physio visit

imagelooking out the window while resting between exercises and waiting for physio to hook me up with muscle stim. did not expect he would cranked it up an extra ten counts but here i am going strong at sixty. it was so painful but no words came out of me, all i could do was stare back at him and think to myself no pain no gain. no doubt he has succeeded in building up my pain tolerance over the years. the intensity of the shock was so high it left two big circular burnt marks on my leg

day 575 – last one standing

image

it was late at night and the gym was pretty empty but that’s my favourite time to be there. taking care of business being the last one on this side and having all the space i need is just the way i like it because i hate waiting for equipment. being at the gym during rush hour is the worst because i feel highly restricted and unproductive not being able to use the equipment immediately

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

day 552 – vmo

image

no secret what is the underlying issue that i try to slip through under the radar all these years. i knew it was only a matter of time until muscle imbalance catches up to me. today, physio finally forced it upon me to work my vmo using the muscle stimulator and i am already not fond of that device. both kinesiologist and physio flat out said it’s a tortuous process where the machine would cause a lot of painful contractions but said that i am forced to do it for as long as it needs to catch up. its a brutal process, but it must be done because he’s not going to let me off the hook anymore
