Medieval Torture, or PT?

I keep mentioning the Graston technique, and thought perhaps it would be good to actually show you guys what it looks like.

Here are some of the tools the PT uses on me:

They really do look like torture implements, don't they?

And here is a very short clip of her working the top part of my ankle/foot (she also does the back, but I flip onto my stomach for that and can't film it, heh!)

I have a pretty high pain tolerance, and generally this doesn't actually feel terrible unless she hits a tender spot. I just hope it works! The PT says that everything feels better to her than it did just one month ago, though when I did some releves for her in pointe shoes the other day, I could feel/she could see that my flexibility in that ankle isn't quite there yet.

I just want the pinching to go away :(

    1. LOL! Definitely cringe-worthy. I hope it works, too!
