–Avoid anything high impact–
The words no runner wants to hear. But I heard them, loud and clear from my podiatrist. At first it didn’t quite sink in that I wouldn’t be allowed to run. I thought he was only referring to my new love for Zumba which I am POSITIVE is the major contributor to my ankle problem.
But no, Mommy can not run or do Zumba at least until she is cleared by a orthopedist.
I guess you want to know WHY I WENT TO THE FOOT DOCTOR, HUH?
Blame my husband. Just kidding. He loves me. But he is why I went.
We were camping & hiking with the kids when he noticed what had been bothering me all week.
Every morning I would wake and as soon as I would take a step onto my right foot -BAM!
“Is there a rubberband holding my foot together?”
It sure felt like if I put any pressure on that foot, this so-called rubber-band would snap and that it would be very painful. So i babied that foot. And after say 15-20 minutes, that snapping characteristic would disappear as if nothing had happened.
My husband had me scared. He has me terrified that I possibly tore a tendon. I mean, he IS a paramedic – he probably knows what he is talking about, RIGHT? I promised to see a doctor as soon as we got home.
So what did I do to ease my mind? I googled that monster.
What did I find? It is possible that I have subluxation of my peroneal tendon <–click to learn more
