Two blogs in two days and not a run in sight!
Osteo says we’ll try some “dry needling” – was I in for a surprise?
Dry needling uses fine filament needles, like those used in acupuncture. These needles are used to target specific trigger points to release muscle tension or reset muscles. Well I’m here to tell you that some muscles when they reset or release tension are bloody painful.
And how come they stick all these needles in me and I’m not bleeding?
I had needles in my calf, quads, hamstrings, hip and my aductors – by far the greatest discomfort was in my hamstrings. I’m hoping this is doing me some good as the osteo said that I need to refrain from any leg work /running for a month after the “Run Melbourne” half. Like I’m going to be happy with that.
