My ankle feels worse after my physical therapy appointment and exercises.

Maybe it was the tough TKD class Wednesday. As I was leaving the dojang, it felt fine. But when I got out of the car at home (after just a 5 minute drive), I could barely limp up the driveway. Spent the rest of the evening with an ice pack on my foot.

The next day (yesterday, Thursday) was ballet. I wasn't sure if I'd be in decent shape to dance, but it was OK by then. I didn't do much in the way of jumps, and afterwards, it was somewhat achy.

I can feel it today--it's a bit stiff.

The physical therapist did say that it would be a while before I noticed a change. I wonder if she meant that it would get worse before it gets better. Anyone out there ever have PT? Is that the way it works?

Hey TKDmom! I'm feeling your pain. After doing 300 pushups and crunches within 2 days, my arms feel like they're going to fall off and my abs hurt whenever I move. I've also updated my blog twice since my post about the tournament this summer. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Having had extensive physical therapy, I can tell you that I almost always felt worse in the beginning. They tended to push my body further than I did on my own so I was much more sore. It's a little frustrating I know because we go there to feel better!
