I am now doing some stretches, icing and whatever else I can figure out, until I receive further direction she has mailed to me. Any good ideas are more than welcome!!
If you drink bottled water, use an empty, fill with water (not all the way to the top, allow room for expansion) and freeze. Put it on the floor and roll it back and forth with the bottom of your foot, apply a little pressure. It massages and ices the soreness...
