I started physical therapy today. The staff seems to be a great bunch of people. This should be an interesting 2 months. Right now I'm going 3 times a week.
I surprised the therapists today with my range of motion. I've been practicing moving my hand after talking to a few people who lost more range of motion than I'm willing to give up. Learning sign language has not yet been scratched off my lifetime to do list, so I need to keep my range of motion. There's still some work to be done, but I'm further along than expected.
Apparently my right hand is still weaker than my left, and since I'm right handed that's not acceptable. So I have to do stuff for strengthening. I'm not sure what all they'll have me do, today I just played with some dry pinto beans.
I was surprised how sore my wrist was at the end of the hour. I figured that with how little I did it wouldn't affect me. I'm hoping that it was the tests that got to me, not the beans. If running my hand through beans leaves me sore then I'm in way worse shape than I thought. But the hand massage at the end was great.
