2.5 weeks 1st PT So, 2.5 weeks on and movement in my left arm getting better. I can drive more easily and help a good bit with my left arm when cooking and putting on clothes. I started PT and the first thing I noticed was that the muscles behind my shoulder were really sore. I think the pulley exercises I was doing caused that, since I hadn't used these muscles in a while. She did some rubbing out of trigger points in that area and around my arm and also used the electrical "tingling" machine on shoulder and ultrasound for the muscles, but not in the operated area. She said we would do some "dry needling" of the area next week to promote oxygen flow and healing. I got several of the "cane" exercises to do at home twice a day, with the pulley, and passive stretching of arm overhead while on the floor. I have a week to work on them before next PT appt. After that, when I got up to go, I felt exhausted. I guess you are supposed to feel that way afterwards.
