Treatment for sports injury
Acupuncture can greatly help with sports injury. But here are some steps that are important to ensure a good recovery. In the first 24-48 hours you will have to Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation (RICE) the affected area. This will help to reduce the bruising and inflammation.
After this time you can start to repair your injury by doing gentle exercise followed by a gentle stretch. After exercise use the RICE procedure again. For ICE you would protect your skin from direct contact with the ice with some material. For big muscles that get a lot of blood supply you can ice the area for up to 10 minutes and then repeat in an hour. For tendons and ligaments which have a poor blood supply you must be careful not to over ice, so no more than 5 minutes and never on bare skin. This will reduce the inflammation.
An important aspect of repair and healing is the flow of blood and energy to the area. This must be encouraged and here are some suggestions;
- Gentle exercise
- Magnetic therapy
- Ultra sound massage
- Electromagnetic heat lamp
Plantar fasciitis pain in my heel
Unfortunately an old injury after playing Airoball has started to play up, plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation and irritation of the plantar fascia, the connective tissue that supports the arch. In my case it is caused by micro-tears in the fascia at or near its attachment to the calcaneus (heel). So I am having to reduce my walking and follow a care routine of stretches (gentle) and frozen peas after exercise, acupuncture and electromagnetic heat lamp. Also I am going to try ultrasound massage therapy. It has improved but still tends to flare up after exercise. What a bother!

Climbing Silver Howe in the Lake district
Walking for a few days in the Lake district we were very lucky to have blue skies and little wind – I hope it lasts. Taking my training for the Santiago Way seriously I decide to take the hard way up. I have always found I can climb up but can’t climb down.
