Family is gone, dogs are settled, holiday lights are making there way up around the neighborhood...I can't believe it is already December. My December includes outpatient physical therapy (PT) for my hip replacement. I've been having someone come into the house for a few weeks, but now it's time to go to them.
This will be my first go at physical therapy. Well, I had an evaluation at the University of Washington a few years ago, but that was mostly to get a prescription for foot support when my drop-foot was bad. I know many people with MS who have either regularly scheduled or ad-hoc physical therapy as part of their MS regime.
I've been pretty good at keeping up with my post-op exercises (pretty good) and am actually bored with them. I'm looking forward to seeing what "Torquemada" has for me.
I joke about that, but the PTs who have come to the house were more than kind...in fact, maybe too kind. I didn't feel very challenged by their exercises. They were, of course, only following doctor's orders and the surgeon only wants to protect his work.
ANYWAY...I'm wondering how many of you out there have had physical therapy for your MS. How many still see their therapist or at least follow the exercise plan laid out for you by one?
I'm sure that it's not going to be the most pleasant of experiences, but I have to tell you, I'm looking forward toanythingthat gets me up and around again.
Wishing you and your family the best of health.
