Hello everyone, i havent been on the forum for quite some time but thought now was the time to return. Approx 4 years ago i had pf, recovered from that and continued with my running. Unfortunately Dec 2006 i fell and injured my coxic (I know this isnt the right spelling!!) and then last Oct i pulled up with pain in my hip and left heel. i immediately stopped running and made an appt to see my physio. She worked on my hip, lower back, knee (i have itsb in my left knee) and coxic area. Unfortunately i still have the pain in my left heel - i know its not pf as its not the same symptoms. im really at a low now as i cant run but equally i cant row or ride a bike because of the pain in my coxic. Obviously my weight has increased a bit becasue of the lack of exercise and i am partial to a glass of wine (i know this isnt helping).
i think the initial injury to my heel was caused by wearing the wrong shoes for work as they had no inner support. i wear heel inserts when i can. i just wondered if i should use them and continue to run?
what are your views on whether i should return to my physio or seek help from a pod? my daughter has suggested that i speak to her physio - shes under an excellent sporting university quite close by.
all views greatly appreciated. i want to return to my running - basic as it may be. i would like to be able to run the Adidas womens challenge in september.
