PT Rocks

Had my first PT session last night post surgery and despite the discomfort, it was fantastic. I don’t know what the numbers mean exactly, but in measuring my range of motion at the beginning of the session and again at the end, I increased my range by 20 degrees! This morning, I could actually raise my right hand to my head and use it to wash and brush my hair. These activities have been a strictly one-handed task until this morning. Progress!

Before PT last night, I was finding it very difficult to imagine surfing again within 8 – 10 weeks. Now, I can see that it might be possible. Don’t get me wrong, there is still quite a bit of pain and I am still not using the right arm much, but it is better.

Wooohooo….

    How is the recovery and PT sessions going? Keep up the PT… it will get you back on track if you stick with it. I dislocated my shoulder really bad while snowboarding a few years back (it was out of the socket for almost an hour before I got to the ER and they popped it in). But I had an awesome therapist for my recovery and I stuck to the exercises they give you to do at home, so I was back to pretty much a 99% range of motion and was surfing myself by about 7 months after the injury. Then again… I did not have surgery. But the human body is amazing with its ability to heal! I hope you’re feeling better! It is a good sign that you’re board shopping in your head these days. 🙂 Merry Christmas!

  2. Thx for the nice feedback. Hope to surf by March…
