But the national championship was about to be underway. Go Tigers! I headed over to a friend’s house to watch the game.
“Oh, my God! What did you do?”, was the greeting as I limped in.” My friend would later appear to derive child like joy from describing and imitating my limp on video.
At the time I didn’t know what I had done. My “unassisted diagnosis” was leaning toward a stress fracture? But, given the deep experience with foot fractures referenced above I knew that the choice was now either 4-hours of waiting in the ER and x-rays , or watch the game. It was a great game!
Plus, I could “zotch” my foot while we watched. I am in the bioelectronics business for a reason. I absolutely believe in the technology, and our unique approach to formulating currents and wave forms.
So, before kick-off I did a 30-minute PNS (Peripheral Nerve Stimulation). Intensity was 40-50% … I ran it high because the foot was really hurting when bearing any weight. That was followed immediately with a 20-minute MCS (Microcurrent) session.
I repeated that protocol while watching the second half. After the game (Congratulations Tigers!), the level of pain had improved from 8 of ten to 5-6, but bearing weight was still very uncomfortable. The stairs at the hotel were especially unpleasant.
