Woo Hoo, RunKitty! So happy for you. You're a champion of consistency.
You know how you can stand with your hands on your hips, thumbs pointed to (an imaginary) wall behind you. It's a common stance, often absent-minded, which I haven't been able to accomplish with my left arm since my rotator cuff injury 10 months to a year ago. Today, working with ds who deals with firefighter exercise and injury a lot, I realized and pointed out to him that I can now raise that arm/hand in that position, way up even several inches above that hip resting place. (there's still discomfort - not bad)
We discussed - is this because of or in spite of my PT. Also, have I had more healing in these months following the formal PT than I did during it? If so, that would suggest that time, specifically, has been the healer, and the torn muscle did somewhat re-knit itself together (for want of a better phrase) after all, which some told me wouldn't happen.
