first physio

I went to my first physio appointment tonight.

I had been doing the recommended physio exercises at home, but have felt (since my return to work) that I’ve plateaued or stalled.

The physiotherapist was glad I called. I have at maximum 50% of possible motion, less than 50% in some specific areas of motion. Kind of made me feel like I wasn’t doing a good enough job, but she was great in pointing out that I had done the best I could on my own considering the abscess.

She spent about 40 minutes gently stretching and doing massage therapy on my scar (that ugly ridge I’m sure I’ve mentioned again and again). If we both keep working on that ridge, there is a good likelihood we can reduce it. I’m all for that!!

So, I’m going twice a week for the next little while.
