ART Review

Thanks for all your comments about trying Match - I'm excited about it! It's good to hear so many people have heard good stories. I will keep you posted on any creepersdashing young men that I meet. ;-)

So I went last night and had my first "ART" session (Active Release Technique). It was different than I thought! I thought it was going to hurt like a mother, but it really wasn't that bad at all.

The chiropractor said he could definitely feel the "adhesion" on my IT band that's been bothering me - it's like a giant KNOT and I can't work it out with my foam roller OR the Stick. He said it's the worst he's felt in a long time (I always wonder when they say that true? Or are they saying that so you'll come back? Hmmm.)

Anyway, my knee feels GREAT today! I woke up in the morning with some achiness (per usual), but after I got done with my strength training at the gym, it felt AWESOME! I go back next Tuesday for another session, and I'm also going to try getting taped at my Physical Therapist tomorrow.

Sideline: I gave in!!! I'm tweeting now. Are any of you?? Not to sound like an 80 year old, but I really don't know what the hell I'm doing! LOL.

Glad your knee feels better today! Just added you to Twitter! Don't worry, I have no clue how to work it still either!

Hurray for the knee and for twitter :D

I think the important thing with your knee is to keep going regularly for a while- it always sucks to assume it's fully recovered right away, only for it to actually get WORSE all the sudden because of not continuing the treatment.

Yay! That's great news your knee is feeling better.

I've stayed away from twitter. I have no idea how it works and I don't think I want to know :) Even the whole facebook thing bugs me. But I'm curious to see how you're going to like it!
