I went for an evaluation on Tuesday July 17th. It was just really to get measurements to see where I am at so that a plan can be made to fit me!
But my first session of therapy was Thursday, today July 19th. I was very ready and excited for this. I think I talked so much that the therapist must have thought me nuts. I just was so excited. I also learned that I am weak. Yes I can walk but wow what I thought was simple exercises turned out to be a struggle for me. I really had to concentrate on one especially. I was to lay on my back and turn my foot out slightly and then raise it. I had to really focus and even though I wasn't even sure how I was going to accomplish 10 of these. But I did and then had to repeat on the other side.
At the end of the session I got to try the recumbent bike. Immediately I was instructed to focus on keeping my knees aligned with my hips, which for me my knees tend to go inwards when I ride a bike. I was told this prevents wear and tear. Very interesting and very good to know! My left did good but my right really wanted to fall inwards so I had to pay attention.
Much work is ahead but I am ready.
