Never thought I'd say this
I'm also starting some physical therapy exercises to help me maintain and build my strength in it. Just simple mobility exercises like extending the thumb to the side, then extending it toward the pinky and holding the position. Another is picking up objects like a marble or paper clip between the thumb and each finger and wrist supination as well. I need to do those a few times a day since the stupid urgent care doctor didn't bother to give me anything, I went on sports medicine doctor websites to find proper exercises for thumb sprains and even tutorials on how to wrap it better. I'd better be all healed up by the end of June. I just can't take the wait and I'm so ready to do this little circuit I had all in my head before vacation to really push myself. I know I can't rush it but I do need to make sure I'm doing everything I can to aid in healing and not icing is a chump move. So if you want to occasionally yell at me to ice, this is the one time I'm giving permission to jump on my booty for my own good! :-)
Hope everyone is having a great week so far!
