Yesterday afternoon I started a physical therapy program after a range of motion evaluation – cervical spine, shoulder and arm strength, etc. Painful and uncomfortable massage. Patient education about posture – that was the most difficult – understanding that my habitual sitting posture has over the years resulted in chronic pain that thinks Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen are candy. Spastic trapezius.
Today I’ve been practicing the exercises the therapist prescribed.
I’ve procrastinated some, but also got some paperwork completed that has been left too long undone.
The physical therapist told me not to kayak for a “short time.” Maybe some time this month I’ll get on the water.
