I was referred a runner just before Christmas ’14 who was having quite a bit of pain in the top of her L foot between her 3rd and 4th metatarsals while running. Over the course of next 4 sessions we were able to resolved the issue to where she had very little pain while running and stiffness afterwards, during our 5th session she told me the previous summer she was having some issues with her glutes not feeling like they were firing and her L hip flexor getting really sore.
This was an important piece for us as we found her L glute max to be underworking and the muscles in her L foot to be overworking for them. We also found her L TFL (tensor fasica latte) to be underworking also and her L tib anterior to be overworking for it. I saw her last week and she the pain and stiffness she was having was gone.
I am as guilty as the next person about forgetting to talk about my injuries to the people who work on me as I am pretty active and only remember the ones that hang around for long periods of time. This was a great reminder to me about how important history and is and how one little thing can make all the difference in the world.
Practice Makes Improvement 🙂
