That's great Winds, it won't be long till you are back kicking with the Rockettes!!
It wasn't really a random thought at the time, but it is a bad idea to crank up the volume on a ZZ Top song when the roads are icy!
haha. Rockettes? I’m short and fat. Today my feet were pretty sore. I’m paying the price.
Don't sell yourself short Winds I bet you can kick with the best of them!!
All kidding aside Winds, the pt people are your friends even though it seems they are trying to kill you. Try to do just a little more then they proscribe, if they say do 10 of an exercise, do 11 or 12, not 20. If they say "do these exercises 3 times a day" maybe do them 4 times a day every other day. Above all listen to your body, it will tell how much is too much. Been through this twice with my shoulder, stretching exercises are important, strength will come in time, but range of motion only comes from stretching the effected joints.
I don't have all my strength back yet, but I got 99% range of motion back in that shoulder. And it is my shooting shoulder, I can shoot whatever without worrying about recoil dislocating my shoulder, which wasn't true before the surgery. My PT guy was a hunter which didn't hurt my shooting goals any.
I haven’t started PT yet. I’m pretty sure I will after the next Dr appt.
Just gimme the cortisone shot and I'll be outta here.
Went to a PT session once just to see what it was about. Never went back. I don't need to pay for a simple flexibility regimen I can do at home.
But they have the knowledge to know what flexibility regime, how often, etc. Yes, then you can do it at home. They also have resistance bands, certain equipment to help build muscle. There are physical therapy assistants who guide you through the exercises but the actual physical therapist who designs the therapy for you must have a Masters degree and the requirement is moving towards needing a Doctorate. There’s a lot of knowledge of anatomy behind those exercises designed for you. And knowledge of what works and what doesn’t.
I guess it depends on the situation. I had a frozen shoulder and did go once. I learned there that for me there was nothing special there that I couldn't do at home for free. The session wasn't cheap and I didn't have someone paying my way.
I also had back surgery and every time I called for more pain killers the nurses there would rag on me about taking meds and I need to go to PT. So later I asked my surgeon if I needed PT and he said "No". He never had an issue refilling my meds, and when I asked him why the help kept ragging on me about it he laughed and said "They're trained that way".
As for the shoulder, the cortisone did the job and everything was fine. I just needed to stop doing what caused it in the first place. I had a habit of leaning on it while at my desk. I got a new chair.... end of story.
Sitting with your wallet in your back pocket causes lots of back and hip issues.
It's not good for the leather seat of your vehicle, either.
Some time back I picked up a well loved Hi-Standard Model B .22 pistol. Rummaging thru safe, decided to pull it out for cleaning and lube. Checking manual on takedown (had been a while) Pistol was made in 1939. Owner's manual was a folded card- front, inside and back- definitely pre-lawyer.
What really got me was the price on that card. $20. Yeah, they are well over that now!
Just noticed unusual seral number. 4 1776.
I'm finally going to finish up getting my armed security license this weekend. I've finished the class portion, now all I need to do is finish the firearms course and qualify. I'm going to be going through at least 400 rounds of 40 S&W, so I'm going to know my new P226 really well by the end of it.
It should be fun.
We had Hoodsie cups. A New England staple.
Chocolate vanilla cups. After you finished the ice cream, you saved the sticks. Used them for all kinds of stuff.
I couldn’t stand the wooden spoons. I had to use a plastic spoon.
We would scrape them on the cement to sharpen them to a point.
My Grandma used to spank me with a wooden spoon when I was very young. She chose the slotted spoons because they stung more.
I have a Ruger Standard, made in 1955. When i bought it off gunbroker 10 years ago, i was pleasantly suprised to find it came with the original box & manual (same sort of deal, card folded 2 times). Apparently at some point, someone paid $37.50 for it.
Bought one at the PX in 1971. That was the PX price back then- $37.50.
