When I hurt my knee skiing a few years ago (I was trying to slide fast near but not into my daughter to spray her with snow), I got some "physio" as they call it Canada (is that what it is called in the US?), and within a short period of time, I felt better. This August, I hurt my achilles pretty severely the last week of the ultimate season and did not seek help, thinking it was going to get better. It did a bit, but kept hurting. Within a couple weeks of getting some physio, I felt better quickly. So, I have learned my lesson.
So, if you get hurt, get to a good physical therapist. It seems to be a booming industry in Ottawa with heaps of outlets nearby. With their help, I have probably another few years of ultimate left.
