physical therapy

Posted by bluestella on 1/19/04 at 16:18 (142386)

Well i have been to 3 appts now and going back tomorrow. I find it very painful and hard to do these exercises and in the short time. I need some advice on how to handle them. Anyone else in pt right now with tts and pf? I have a lot of swelling i love the whirlpool. The towel exercise is ok and the band but some of the other ones i think irrate my foot. And i am suppose to do them like 5 times a day im lucky to do them 3.... any ideas?

Tell your pt how much discomfort you're in. My PT had little experience with tts and pushed my body faster than it was ready to go. Overall my experience with pt was good but I only saw improvement when I slowed down. The slower pace worked out well.
