Yesterday my neuro & today my ortho. The Dr said I could quit wearing the splint. He gave me exercises to do with a hammer & the kitchen sink. Sounded crazy to me too even for Arkansas! I have to hold a hammer in my hand and twist it back and forth, as I gain strength I have to move my hand down the handle so the weight gets heavier on one end. The kitchen sink is a kind of water therapy. I have to fill one side of the sink with cool water & warm water on the other side. Put my arm in the cool side first then move to the warm side and twist my arm back forth several times, then back in the cool water. This Dr is very well respected and loved & has been practicing a long time so I'm following what he says even if it does seem strange. I'll keep you posted. Just pray that nobody makes me mad while I've got the hammer in my hand!
