After riding across the US in 2012, I experienced an injury to my right thumb/wrist area. I was pretty sold that the uncomfortable sensation I felt in that region, was as a result of me spending 912+ hours on the bike. I simply figured it would go away. I was very wrong.
After “ignoring” the stiff, throbbing thumb and wrist, for five long years I finally decided to get it checked out. After two X-Rays and an MRI, it revealed I have a torn ligament in my thumb. After consulting numerous surgical and physical therapy options with my doc, we decided to go the physical therapy route. In addition to six weeks of physical therapy, he also suggested I take six weeks off of work to fully give the area rest.
This is the first time over ten years, that I had this much time off to recover. During this time, I am in full recalibration mode. Focusing on my mental and physical health. I plan on the next couple weeks to be completely recharged, healed and ready to move forward with many extremely important areas of my life.
Here’s a couple pics from PT, thus far:
