Looking for medical advice (Read 257 times)

    Hopefully the final update!

     

    Feeling about 1000% better these days.

     

    I have been going to a chiropractor the past 3 weeks or so, getting some active release work done and what a difference.  The calf muscles can actually move now and that seems to have broken up the entire posterior chain (achilles, plantar, hamstrings, hips).

     

    Back to doing long runs, speed work, etc.

     

    Still not sure what cause it all in the first place?  Lack of stretching, trauma, something viral?  Either way, I highly recommend ART if you can find someone that does it well.

     

    Thanks again for all your posts and suggestions.
