I had my first visit for aquatic therapy on Wednesday. Felt okay after, a little sore but that's to be expected right? Only one of the exercises caused actual pain and not just muscle exhaustion. Lost most of my ability to grip with my right hand after forty minutes and that's when the therapy was stopped.
Thursday my pain level was worse than usual. Doing things with my right hand typically sets off my pain, and being a bookkeeper I work with my right hand all day. I can usually get through the day, it's painful but I can make it through. Thursday I couldn't make it, I had to go home. Same thing today and I went to my second therapy appointment which this time was even worse, more of the exercises caused actual pain.
The therapist doesn't seem quite sure what to think about what I'm feeling either, and I really don't know how long it's a good idea to stick it out and wait to see if it benefits me before deciding that it's not helping.
