Today I had my first visit to physical therapy for my recently diagnosed IT band tendonitis. I was extensively evaluated, given some ultrasound treatments, and sent home with a handful of stretches to do 2-3 times a day.

My next appointment is scheduled for Wednesday, and I have two scheduled next week as well. The orthopedist that referred me recommend 1-2 times a week for next 4-6 weeks. I’ve also been told to limit my running to 10-15 minutes, one time a week.

It’s my hope and prayer that by 2012, this will be a thing of the past. Now that I WANT to be active, NOT being able to be as active as I’d like is not fun at all.
