At my first appointment on Wednesday, Dr. Olivetti didn't seem too concerned with what was going on.
At my second appointment on Friday, he adjusted me and I told him "It kind of hurt". This concerned him. He said I may have a disc problem and that is why my hip/glute hurts.
WTF?? I do not have a disc problem. He told me not to run or jump or do anything over the weekend until he saw me on Monday.
Yeah right. Over the wekeend I did a walk/run, push ups, pull ups... I knew I didn't have a disc problem. Call me stupid if you want, but the only reason he thought I may have a disc problem was due to me saying the adjustment hurt. (I don't know why he adjusted me anyway. I will not be letting him do that again.) Are adjustments actually supposed to feel good?
I have lots of wonderful runs coming up. I still may be running a trail half at the end of May. And I want to run while we are on vacation in June. So I am going to really baby my body and stick with lots of walking and an occasional walk/run for now. I would hate to be injured while we are on vaycay and miss running in Colorado, Santa Fe, and San Diego!
Okay, time to go learn all I can about the TFL!
Do you think adjustments feel good?
Ever experience pain in your TFL?
