I'm back from my first full PT appointment. She warned me that I'll be sore afterwards and she was right!
I was put on some contraption that she buckled my legs into so they couldn't move and had me lean back against 25lbs of pressure and lean forward as far as I could. My feet fell asleep!
I was then placed in another machine that pushed against my back and I had to "cat arch" against it to move it. It was quite a strain.
Next she had me to sit on a bench and do arm lifts and waist twists. She had me lay down on the bench on my stomach and bend my knees. I couldn't do many due to a spasm. When she told me to sit up my back screamed in severe pain!
She had me stretch out some muscles to calm it down.
She had me do some steps when I felt like it. By the time I was done I was in a good spasm and couldn't do the toe touching as far as before.
I've never hurt so much!
My joints popped and cracked so loudly she could hear them.
I told her just called me "snap, crackle, pop"!
