If RX is too soft for ya then come through AS.

I was in the mood for this right now. Or science-based chatter. Plus, not sure what you mean by 'rough.'  ; )

wrist rotations w/ 3lb weight-1 set of 20

stretching my arm by holding the wrist in handshake postion, then twisting the forearm to the left for 30 secs palm up, and to the right palms down for 30 secs-repeat each 2 times

towel squeezes-3 sets 10

holding the arm flexed trying to touch my fist to shoulder-30 secs-repeated 2 x

laying on table and letting arm hang off side and stretch for 5 mins

Appears to be standard rehab procedures.  Looks as if rehab has been careful to avoid doing too much too early. But, you're even exercising biceps isotonically.  Traditionaly, biceps are avoided until at least four to six weeks after surgery. The exercises you've reported work the biceps muscle without straining the healing tendon and allowing your shoulder girdle to maintain range of motion.

You might require therapy for two to three months. Remember that it generally takes four to six months to perform forceful biceps activities. You're might heal at a faster rate considering your particular surgery.

All in all. You're fine. Be patient.

You'll be fine. Sounds like a minor muscle strain.

Yes. But, still be careful because those back muscles and scapulae stabilizers  are stLLill active during chest exercise.

thank u very much!

why do u think i keep getting sore in my wrist...but not in my bicep? stretching seems to help it...

also, do u think a machine pullover , machine shoulder press, and a machine dip(where u kneel on the pad and it goes up and down) would be safe?

thanks

Well, this is a lot of wrist exercise for someone who had a biceps tear and surgery.

Other structures besides your biceps are likely compensating.

Those exercises appear fine as long as you start with no load. Becareful during dips becauses the biceps lengthens greatly. Consult with your PT that you're seeing first.

PT jobs are out there, but the schooling is not easy.
I donít know if itís taken affect yet, but there was talk that ALL physical therapists would eventually be required to obtain their DPT (Doctor of Physical Therapy) which would require more schooling and expense.

PTís are common in the rehab department in hospitals.
In this environment, they usually treat patients following orthopedic surgeries.
There are also PT outpatient clinics that deal with post-op and a variety of other conditions such as injuries, etc.

There are some lucrative postions within many PACE programs.
The work is fairly easy and the pay and work conditions are very good with no weekend or shift work.

Becoming a PT is neither easy nor cheap.
Also, there arenít many schools that offer PT programs, and such programs are very competitive to get into.
