Nothing New, but Graston

Based on APORES
scoring “Amusement Park and Other Rides Excitement Scale,” which ranges between
the penny ride at Meijer on the low end and Millennium Force on the other end,
my injury rates somewhere along the excitement level of a bidirectional carousel. 

I went to the sports
doctor today and they did an X-Ray, just to be sure it was not a stress
fracture.  The conversation went like

Dr: “Your tibia
and fibula look good.” 

Me: “Thank
you.  People always say that, but it just
seems like the type of thing people say to be nice.  When you see them in black and white, you can
really tell they are awfully nice.”

Dr: “Well…moving


(In case you forgot what they look like without their meat.)

No stress
fracture.  So, they have scheduled me for
some physical therapy.  I start next
Monday.  They will be using the Graston
method.  Painful they say, but effective. 
Well, I can only
hope that, like the penny ride, it will be over quickly.
