When I was at PT I was also asked what my goals are from PT. That was easy – I want my ROM back and better quality of sleep. Simple as that.
Sleeping is becoming more and more difficult for me.
My R shoulder gets sore if I lay on it for too long, laying on the back I need to prop up the shoulder & my R arm gets stuck in midair; on the tummy is not ideal either and of course my arm is throbbing too. I am not digging this.
More motions that are becoming challenging are giving a hug, shaving arm pits (maybe TMI but I am just being real) and reaching for the backseat while sitting in the drivers seat is monstrous.
Doing a pedicure on my R foot is also not a piece of cake. Having screws in my hip limits my reach down there as it is and combining it off with a frozen shoulder now really tops it off. I guess it’s time to have my twinkle toes done by a professional.
On the bright side of things – I actually had a pretty good nights sleep after visiting the PT office. I think my PT releasing the muscle, which I now even know what it’s called…
…actually helped already. My shoulder felt more relaxed and I was able to sleep through. Rare these days.
I also was not hurting too much after PT BUT… I also did not have a full PT session yet. My first therapy was mostly talking about medical history, measuring and “some” PT. Might be a whole different story once somebody cranks my shoulder around for over a full hour.
Started my new exercises too. So far I got 9 exercises, each 15x, 3x/ day. My first round was not good. I rotated my shoulder a tiny bit too much – it left me in tears during that exercise. I hope not to experience thay any time soon again.
