Weekly Win - 12

Happy first week of Spring.  While the calendar indicates Spring is here, it’s been pretty darn cold here in Vancouver.  I’m not complaining, the eastern provinces and the eastern US have experienced one last winter storm.  Many people spent the weekend staying warm and digging themselves out of the drifts of snow.

It’s been a good week so let’s get to this week’s Weekly Wins!

I was able to ditch my crutches on Monday and ‘hobble’ around the house.  At physio that day had Brandon reassessing the damage, releasing some compensatory tightness and setting me back up on the ultrasound to continue to work on the swelling that is still hanging around. 

This experience has given me a first-hand look at traumatic injury, the effects of pain and inflammation on the body and the different stages of the healing process.  It has reenergized my drive to work with athletes and help them get back to their sport as quickly as they can.  I have refined my goals for my writing, and I can’t wait to share it with everyone once things are in place.

I returned to work this week after two and a half weeks off with my ankle injury.  I kept my schedule opening reduced so I could ensure the best care for my clients.  My initial concern was that my ankle would create restrictions to moving around while working with my clients.  I move around a lot when working and I’m happy to say that my ankle held up thanks to ankle taping, an ankle brace, and Advil. 😊
