Active Release update

Posted by Aly on 11/14/03 at 13:36 (137505)

Hi all,

Thought I'd post the latest on my ART therapy. I've had 9 appointments now, (though I went 2 weeks without one unfortunately) and while I'm having a setback right now (my feet do not like taping!) I do see improvement in 1 area: it used to be that I could not curl my toes down or otherwise tighten up the muscles of my arch, without them cramping up and going into mild spasm. It always hurt so of course I avoided doing so. I've discovered I can now do that, there's no pain or spasm - so that's some improvement!

The thing is, my first doctor was using electrodes to 'zap' the muscles on the bottom of my feet, so theorectically that strengthened them and resulted in this improvement - so I don't know whether it was that or the ART, or a combination of the two. Hope the improvement doesn't end there... :)

Thanks, Aly. I hope the improvement continues, too.
