Physical Therapy

I had my first physical therapy today. The P.T. agreed with my doctor that I have minor tendonitis. (He actually knew about the RSIGuard program I’m using too, heh.) We planned out a set of stretches for the muscles on the top and bottom of my arms, as well as strength training exercises. I need to go back on Friday for a followup.

Even though I have great insurance coverage and I only get billed minor fees, this stuff is really starting to add up. I think I’m going to buy a Cirque GlidePoint touch pad or something and put it on my keyboard. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, but I think I finally have the motivation to. $70 isn’t so much when you look at a doctor’s bill.

Is anyone else having trouble with LiveJournal not e-mailing when comments are posted?

    No, but I’m having trouble with LiveJournal being DOG SLOW lately!

  2. Yup, I may. But both the doctor and the physical therapist say the tendonitis is minor now, and should hopefully go away if I keep up my exercises and stretching and limit my computer usage, etc.

  3. I hope you don’t either, in more ways than one! I tend to be playing with my wrists a lot myself lately…. :/ But on the other hand, I’m not taking care of myself, either, using the keyboard and mouse at odd angles in necessity, for now.

    Keep me posted.

  4. Physical therapy works wonders. A little bit of exercise goes a long way. I recommend fixing your posture sooner rather than later, because by the time you feel pain, the damage has already done. The only way to go back is surgery.
