Today, while doing physical therapy exercises for my broken leg, I managed to throw my back out. Now I can neither walk nor sit up. FML
cray12 tells us more :
Thanks for making me laugh with some of these comments. The back thing is an old injury that flairs up every so often for a few days, it just had terrible timing. As for the leg....well it's getting better pretty quickly (is 2 months quick for a broken bone?) thanks to my physical therapist and an awesome surgeon that pieced my broken tibia together. Now I just have to learn my lesson and not get on an ATV that my brother is driving ever again. But on the bright side I get to laugh at all the FML's and get a couple of months off of work.

Sometimes people are so out of shape after surgery/injuries it surprises PT's what can injure them. I've spent many years in therapy rooms and I can honestly say it's shocking.


Clients in outpatient clinics are typically given an HEP (home exercise program) of basic exercises, so the things that do require more skilled therapy can be focused on while at the clinic.
