Physical therapy today

Monday, May 06, 2013

I went to physical therapy today. I do have the same physical therapist that I had last time, Robert. It hurt but it was a good hurt. I had my health aid with me and I wanted to go soak in the pool after physical therapy. The aid said it was not on the schedule and she wouldn't do it. She had to take me back home, get me up the stairs, which is a lot easier than getting down, and showered.

Here I thought that since I was out and at the Hospital for Special Care anyway I could go and at least soak in the therapy. The health aid has thrown a wrench in my plans. All the other aids I have had have done what I wanted but not her. She goes specifically by the schedule. I am going to have to talk to Robert and see if he will add that to the schedule since she is hell bent on the schedule. It would have been a lot easier to shower at the Hospital too, since you walk into the showers and don't have to literally climb into the tub to take a shower. I am going to do something, either change the schedule or change the aid.

Most of what we did today were stretches and he put the ultra sound machine on my neck and shoulder. Ohhhh that felt so good but when he massaged it, it hurt a little but a good hurt. I have to go back on Friday. Robert gave me exercises and stretches to do everyday.

    I'm glad physical therapy went well Bonnie. Hope things work out with your health aid. I remember the "good" hurt of going to therapy and definitely understand what that means. Hope you feel much better soon!

    Glad the therapy went well. Can't say as much for the aide apparently! I'd be looking into a change on that one for sure!

    So glad therapy went well today, hope you get things sorted out with the aid. You would think she would see it would be easier to shower at the hospital. Hopefully Friday you will get to soak in the pool.

    Glad PT is going good. Sometimes it seems like they are trying to hurt but they are doing it for the overall good.

I would see about making some kind of change with the aid. Seems silly to make you go home and climb into the tub, if you could have showered at the hospital without the tub hazards. Seems like it would be better for you and easier for the aid.

Keep up the hard work to get better.

    Progress Bonnie.
Don't you just hate what we call "Job's Worths" over here. People who follow the letter of their job and not the spirit because it's more than their job's worth! It so annoys me that she could not accommodate you! Hope your chat with Robert sorts that out, it makes perfect sense to me.

    So glad you have a plan of action on how to get what you want/need for therapy in order to maximize the benefits of each session. Good for you. I hope you start regaining your mobility quickly.
