Have you ever gone for a run after a long break and felt pain in your knees after? That’s your IT band talking to you! Daphnie explains what the IT band is, why it seems to cause pain at the drop of a hat, and the cheap and easy solution to getting back on your feet in no time. Plus, we talk reality TV diets in “This is Crazy, Right?”
So, you’re injured. What do you do now? Daphnie takes us through what to do for ourselves in the first 48 hours, when you should see your doctor, and what that doctor might tell you. Joanna talks about what to look for in a physical therapist (and what makes a bad one) and Daphnie makes the case for chiropractors and acupuncture. Our message: don’t be afraid to get help! Feeling good is worth a bit of your time, focus, and money. Plus, Daphnie does her best to pick out a Best Choice at Subway.
