My ITBS is bugging me since the Milo National Marathon eliminations in July. I can't run beyond 7km. My running mileage was declining, and I'm gaining weight.
I bought a foam roller and tried to rehabilitate myself. But still, I can't run beyond 7km.
Last Friday, I went to Intercare in Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City. I met Mr. Franc Auto, PTRP. I told him that I have this pain in my left ITB, and that it could be ITBS as I have researched over the internet. To be sure of my condition and give me the best and correct treatment, I was diagnosed and treated by a Rehabilitation Doctor - Vicente Antonio A. Reloza, MD, Chiropractor - Serry Alfonso Pizarro II, DC, and Physical Therapist - Jayson B. Adriano, PTRP.
I was impressed with the way I was taken cared by the Intercare team. They asked me about my activities, did some tests, and I really felt their commitment to bring me back into the game.
After the diagnosis, they put a warm compress on the affected area. Then a machine was used to further relax the muscles and determine where exactly the pain emanates. I feel the electricity twitch my muscles in my left leg.
Then the affected area was massaged, stretched, and rock taped. Boy, it felt so good after that I want to run already. But I need to heed to the doctor's advise to further cut down on my running, and swim instead while we heal my ITB.
In my next session, I will undergo myotherapy. I'm sure this will be another exciting healing session for me.
