The session started off well, catching up with how I've been doing and filling in a student therapist on my condition. Why do I have to have the best looking therapists that are outta my reach!
All the observation tests were done and according to her I still have good strength on my hands and arms. My legs, that's another story.
Then came the timed walking exercises.
My times today:
25 ft walk with cane: 16.6 sec
25 ft walk with walker: 8.6 sec
My times on 7-5-12:
25 ft walk with cane: 11.2sec
25 ft walk with walker: 7.6 sec
TUG (Timed Up & Go from a sitting position):
With cane today: 20.2 sec
With cane 7-5-12: 16.6 sec
With walker today: 13.3 sec
With walker 7-5-12: 13.8 sec
5 times stand and sit:
Today: 25.8 sec
7-5-12 19.8 sec
So obviously I slowed down a little bit, but then again my times in July were taken after having few weeks therapy... during nice weather. Unlike today 3-20-13 where winter just wont let go. On a better note, my gardening skills haven't slowed down yet!
