I saw the physical therapist this morning, before the hike, and he liked the information from the Orthopedist. I was given several exercises, to stretch the new areas of concern in my hip. Skipping ahead to the night, when I tried the new exercises. The clamshell stretch I was given completely eliminated the hip impingement that gave me great pain. On the first rep I felt a pop, and the impingement was gone!!!! The other stretches also felt good, and I’m hopeful for improvement of my back. 🙂
A quick walk around Whipple Creek Park today but not much to convey. I’ve been working on liberating trees of the Ivy and pulled a muscle in my shoulder. The moral of the story is to remove your backpack when cutting vines and sawing branches. I just got lazy and paid the price.
