I have the most amazing Physical Therapy team helping me get movement back in my little finger! This experience has given me new insight and appreciation into what people with larger, more vital injuries must go through to get back up and functioning.
I am very fortunate that at this point my finger is not a hinderance to my everyday activities anymore. Yet these ladies in PT are treating my therapy very seriously and have taken a personal stake into getting my finger to bend.
Look what they made for me on Friday!
Just out of their heads. No plans, no kit, just their ingenuity and creative minds and fingers fitting and tweaking until it was just right, according to them.
A banjo string tightener-thingie to make my little finger stay in a bent position for 30 minutes a day, three times a day.
And a pulley system for my finger to pull on attached to a rubber band for resistance after it's been released from the "bent position holder".
I am just amazed by this thing and it really helps me work the finger in a more productive manner with resistance.
Just wanted to share this genius with you and if my PT ladies ever read my blog I want them to know how great I think they are. Thank you ladies!
And everyone have a good weekend!
