Results are back from the MRI and, thankfully, they show no signs of a stress fracture. There is potentially a minor tear of the cartiledge. The thought now is to go after the piriformis by injecting it into paralysis and then running on it to analyze the level of discomfort. If the discomfort is gone, that is the main issue and we'll hopefully have reduced the spasm via injection to allow it to begin healing. PT should then stretch and strengthen it to avoid a recurrence. Testing on Tuesday. Until then, no trail or road running and plyo is definitely out. Could be worse... At least I can cycle and swim!
