So I went to the doctor for my knee. He says it isn't Osgood Schlatters from the X-rays he saw. For some reason there is inflammation where the tendon meets the bone on my tibia. He said I need to build up the patella's tolerance... and to start very light and build up. He recommends I go to physiotherapy and not to do any leg work at all until then (which is next week) and see what they say.
Now this is the thing... physiotherapy isn't covered by Ontario health care but it is covered by my school health plan... for up to 240 dollars worth. This gives me about 3 sessions worth of physiotherapy before I need to pay myself. I will probably just learn what I need to do and then do it on my own. I have never been to physiotherapy so I really don't know what to expect. How long do things like these take to subside? I want to compete at the end of August but now I'm not so sure I will be able to. If I don't compete than I lose my chance to qualify for the nationals.
