This last Friday at physical therapy was and reevaluation day. I am so excited to tell you guys what happened.
So Friday at physical we had to do a rereevaluation. My therapist Natalie tested my active and active/passive range of motion. I am so excited with how far I have come after my half shoulder replacement surgery.
We started with my normal routine and then started with the evaluation. We tested my active range of motion, which is me moving/lifting my arm by myself. Going straight out front I got to 90°, to the side I got to 78°, and with my arm my side bent at at the elbow I got 0° (and we’re only aloud to go to 30°). We then did some active/passive table stretching. Going straight out to the front she stretched me out to 122°, going out to the side she got me to 120°, and with my arm by my side with my arm bent pushing it outward she got me to 16° (and we’re only aloud to go to 30°).
I am beyond proud of myself! I am can’t believe how far I have come! I am so thankful to all the people who pushed me, helped me, and believed in me. I have worked so hard to get where I am today. I thank God for never leaving me and standing by me throughout everything.
