2012 Olympics: A Quick Progress Update

 on

It’s been a rough couple of weeks.

I injured my knee during my first outdoor competition on 4/21/12 in California. Immediately after the competition, I went to get treatment.

Every day, I go to Dr. Josh Glass at Georgia Sports Chiropractic here in Atlanta. He does ultrasounds, active release, light therapy, Kinesio tape, pneumatic compression, electrical muscle stimulant, and many other methods.  He is the best chiropractor in the nation. He will also be a part of the Olympic Medical Team.  He has helped many athletes achieve gold medals so I am happy to be in good hands.

I am happy and grateful to have him on my team because I may compete in New York on June 9th depending on how my knee feels. It is for a big pre-Olympic competition. Hopefully, I will be feeling great. I’m also doing pilates and yoga to help me stretch my muscles in my quads and hamstrings. I also work out in the sand to reduce some stress of the pounding on my knees. I hope all of this hard work pays off in the end.

I am both anxious and nervous all at the same time about competing again because it seems like I have been sitting out for a while. And I’m nervous because I don’t want to compete badly because of my knee.
