Continuing from my post before this…
Along with all of my spasms and tightness comes pain as well. I’ve upped my therapy during the week to double sessions (1 ½ hours instead of 45 minutes) to try to get things under control. I’ve also integrated more stretching during the day to help decrease my tightness. It makes it a little difficult to do things when everything’s going on at once and I’m having a hard time managing things in that department. I feel like I’m in a constant battle with my body. I’m not sure what else I can do. All I can say is my schedule is pretty booked already with therapy. I know I’ve talked about my therapy before but here is a look at my weekly schedule:
Monday: Massage 9 AM-10 AM
Tuesday: PT 8 AM-9:30 AM followed by Acupuncture for 45 minutes
Wednesday: PT Afternoon for 1 ½ hours
Thursday: Manual Therapy 8:30 AM (kind of like PT only a little different)
Friday: PT 8:15 AM-9:45 AM
Currently, I am looking into other options to figure out where my tightness and pain is coming from. I went to a Gillette clinic for a seating evaluation yesterday and the guy that did it told me it might be time for a new wheelchair! Not sure what to think this info yet; I’ve had this wheelchair for 4 years now. My last electric wheelchair died on me after 5 years so it’s definitely a real possibility and consideration. Does anybody have any suggestions on brand, style etc.? I have only worked with Invacare wheelchairs but I want something different. Any comments would be greatly appreciated!
Coming next post: more about me and what I've been up to; less about tightness and pain!
