I am very grateful to my daughter that she had to cancel her appointment with 'our' physio today and in doing so asked them to put my name down in her place. I didn't bother to ring on Friday after the unplanned sit down on the steps but I certainly need some extensive physio in many places. It was a long weekend so I doubted there would be any vacancies in the busy schedule. Jenny today worked on my knee with ultrasound and the muscles in my thigh with massage and boy the latter sure did hurt.
Now I have strapping on my knee in 3 places and an exercise to do to tighten and then relax the thigh muscle as many times a day as I can. Jenny thinks that when the knee bent more than it normally does I caused some stretching of various muscles etc., and now we have to work to get them back to normal.
I have another appointment on Monday when I will have some work done on the painful areas in my back where I hit against the step behind me when I went down. That I am looking forward to immensely. It will hurt but I know it will also help which is the main thing.
Not much can be done for my poor old hands which also took a battering as one was holding the walking stick and I took my weight on the other hand. Both ended up with excess pressure which hasn't helped them one little bit. I probably need thumb replacements but I don't like the idea of my hands being in a plaster for up to 6 weeks and not being able to use it/them. I've not even gone there and doubt I ever will.
So thank you K for thinking of me and I am glad you were able to get another appointment for yourself next week. We both are so grateful to Jenny for doing her best to keep us mobile. Apart from being a delightful person, she does a fantastic job with out ailing joints and muscles. I have been going to her for so long that I regard her not only as my physiotherapist but also as a friend.
