PT


Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Went to PT today & learned that I DO still limp. Hmphf! Also learned that I rotate my left foot way inward--no wonder I'm wobbly! He thinks it's all just bad habits from the last 3 years and not anything structural. So, I got an awesome massage of the incision area to loosen things up and a bunch of new exercises.

I'm actually looking forward to it--it's such a pleasure to be getting better after being a little worse every day for so long! I have a prescription for twice a week for a month. AND I'll finally have some fitness time to log here!

Other than that, this week I'll be running around like a chicken with it's head cut off trying to get errands done before I go back to work. I also want to try to get a whole body massage. I deserve it!

P.S. Hubby got his tooth pulled yesterday & is going back today for a couple of fillings. They will also return his partial with a new false tooth in it. So glad that's done & he won't have to suffer with mouth pain any more!

    I'm doing the same thing with my right hip and leg. i have a noticeable internal rotation, that I'm trying to correct daily during my recovery. I've probably done this for many years, so it's really hard to correct.
Glad that you got some exercises for that. I would be very interested in learning what they are, so that I could incorporate them into my own physio programme at home. Susan

    Congratulations on your newly found liberty. Exercise has made such a different for me in terms of overall energy levels. I hope it is as kind to you.

And, of course, congratulations to your husband on the near-end to his suffering.

Best wishes to you (both) on your journey to good health and personal happiness!
