In the last few years I have had a lot of physical therapy. I had months of it after my hip replacement and I have had more for my back. Most of my PT for my back has been in Cordova and since we do not have regular physical therapist, we have a lot of travel persons in that role.
It is very interesting to me how difference each one of these persons is. Oh, I don’t mean in their manner, but more in the different exercises they give you and their approach to the problem.
Today I went to the physical therapist upon the advice of my doctor. I had started having back spasms which is something new and she thought I should give PT a try. This therapist took a totally different approach and it will be interesting to see if that changes of the next few weeks.
He wants me to use the treadmill twice a day and to do exercises twice a day. Most of the exercises the last therapist prescribed were ones standing up. So far, these are all with my lying down.
I really don’t have a preference as long as they are helpful which I am hoping they will be.
I find all of this most interesting and will be eager to see how things progress in the next few weeks. I will visit the PT twice a week for a month and they get a re-evaluation and go from there. This guy is here for six months so I should see him quite a bit.
Father, I am thankful for the many different people who are trained and have skills to help others. I am thankful for the opportunity to go to PT and to get help. And I am thankful you are the great physician and healer. I am blessed. Amen.
