|The one on the right don't feel right|
But, my right ankle was bothering me. There's a tightness that doesn't go away. After the guy there suggested following up, I made an appointment for an injury consultation at Fleet Feet Sports in Elmhurst.
The chiropractor I saw there was very thorough and quickly identified a few weaknesses. It appears as though one side of my ankle is lacking, so all of my muscles are compensating as a result. He wants me to come into his office for X-rays and a consultation. But he also wants me to rest for six weeks.
I'm torn on this, because I want to be proactive before a pain becomes an injury. However, it's not bothering me enough to not run. And I'm also suspicious by nature and realize doctors have to make some money, too. I made a follow-up appointment, but I'm not sure if I'll keep it.
I'm doing a 5K this weekend because I won a free entry, but if I have to take it slow, I'm OK with that, too.
What do you think, should I be taking this as seriously as the chiropractor is? If so, should I skip the chiropractor and go straight to an orthopedist?
