Today I started physical therapy. It was pretty rough. Even the occupational therapist, Michael, was surprised with my limited range of motion and strength. Little does he know how much it has improved since my cast came off.
The primary challenges are extension of the wrist and supination. I simply can't bend my hand back past a neutral position or rotate my right thumb pointing left away from me.
It was hard work and he is definitely going to push me physically and mentally and which is exactly what I need and I'm paying for. The plan is 1-2 visits per week with work at home each for 6 weeks. We will focus on passive and active range of motion (ROM) and mobility of the joint.
Then I will gradually begin working on strength. In the meantime I will keep going to Crossfit, hike, and swim.
