Day 86 Singapore Health Care.
- Jun 25th, 2019 at 11:37PM
So I’ve been to the Doctor and Physio about my heel today and as Kit “diagnosed” I have Plantar Fasciitis.
Apparently I’m running on my heels instead of mid or front foot, so that last 10km in Sydney finished me off by putting to much compound pressure on it.
However, Singaporean Doctors generally like to try and find more
problems than you actually thought you had, and then rule them out with an expensive MRI. After 9 years I’m wise to it, so actually our family Dr is very good, she diagnosed it in about 90 seconds, didn’t bother giving me any meds, or suggest X-Rays etc. So that was good.
However she had to refer me to a physio, and things quickly became more problematic!
So after seeing the physio for an hour, not only do I not run properly, I’m also not walking correctly, which is an odd thing to be told at 47!
Now I’ve got a few stretching exercises to do, I need to learn a new way to walk🤦🏻♂️and when it’s heeled (pun intended😉) I’ve just got to learn a new way to run🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️.
So all I need to do now is visit the physio at $100 a go to completely relearn how to walk and then run again. That sounds easy... and cheap....😱
