Physical Therapy started with moist heat therapy. I did some exercises… Therapy ended with a massage. That’s my kind of therapy. Yes, masks are required.
I have been doing my therapy on my own, though I’ve been sorer since beginning. I need to get this arm to straighten up. In order to do so… I need to move it!
It is getting easier though it hasn’t been that long. I still cannot raise it up without assistance. Though I did it with a gadget in therapy today.
I almost forgot to tell you. I saw the hand surgeon yesterday. I don’t need surgery. I have Dupuytren’s Nodules which isn’t as bad as a contracture. It shouldn’t cause me anymore problems than it already has. The arthritis is the main problem. She recommended I get into see a rheumatologist.
So that is what I’ve been doing. Sorry I’ve been neglecting my blog. How are you?
Love, Peace and Light! Rita
