I am looking for some general advice / guidance here, not injury specific
I have had a pain in my quad for more than 18 months (Pain builds up after a few runs) and I have been to see 5 x physio's, 3 x different doctors , 1 x chiro, 1 x acupuncture guy, 3 x orthotics / podiatrists. I have had X Rays, MRI's, ultrasound, ESWT, Graston, ART, Dry needling, herbal med's, orthotics blah blah blah.
Every person I see without fail feels says "this is a nothing injury, do this and you will be back running in such and such a time"
The fact is they are wrong, all of them everytime.
I had only been running for 2 years up until this point and I guess I go the bug for it. After many years of being overweight, anxious and unhappy I had finally found something that fixed everything that is until I got injured.
What I would like some advise on is what do you do when this happens, surely this cant be the end of my running, I am only 35!!
What would you do, what do you do when you cant find anybody who can help or even listen to you when you turn up at their office!
Long shot I know but hopefully somebody can offer me some solid general advice and guidance.
