Alex started physical therapy today. They hooked him up to this electro therapy machine. It sent little electric pulses to his hip. The therapist also realigned him. It looked like one hip was higher than the other. Alex said he felt taller when he was done.

We're still not 100% sure what's wrong with him. He had x-rays and has been examined by a doctor. The doctor thinks it's just a muscle strain. The radiologist said his muscles/bones were having a hard time regenerating themselves because he's working so hard and he's still growing. He was given the all-clear to continue running for now. He still has some pain and hasn't done any hard workouts this week. He plans on running Saturday at a meet. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that he has a good day!

A little pain is OK but a lot of pain means stop! Keep working at recovering, Alex, and don't push yourself over your limit! We're thinking good thoughts for you!
