P.T. and swelling??Posted by Mel on 8/04/04 at 17:16 (156930)
I have been under treatment for P.F. for some months now.
I began P.T. this week. It includes electro-stim, and phonphoresis (sp?). With the ultrasound they are using the Kenalog steroid cream my Pod wanted me to have.
After the first treatment I am experencing swelling in the ball of my left foot, but not in the right. my left has always been the worse of the two . I called the Pod and asked if this is normal. His answer, thru his nurse, was that the P.T. can cause some discomfort and swelling. Is this likely? I thought the P.T. would be of a help, especially since his objective was to reduce the inflammation in the foot......now I have more swelling than before.
Is this swelling temporary? I have another session scheduled for tomorrow.
