Now physical therapy on me.

Thursday, November 07, 2013

Monday I hand A PT evaluation of my right hand which got injured in a wreck 8 weeks ago and had out of a cast for 2 weeks. I had a fracture of one off the metacarpal bones. Several of my fingers didn't want to work just right. I did learn some exercises to do besides what I had been doing on my own. Yesterday I had over an hour of therapy of moving each joint in my fingers alone and then adding one at a time together with a second joint and then a 3rd join and also exercises of the wrist. I started with 12 minutes of my hand and wrist in paraffin for 12 minutes and then at the end 10 minutes with a cold pack. I don't do well with cold on my hands in cold weather. Now I have a thumb wrist splint to wear when I am doing stuff.

I really want to get back to other exercises, espically when my husband graduates from home health physical therapy.
