“Today I had physical therapy which went ok. I had some pain in the elbow, which has been off and on today. I told my physical therapist about my mechanic problem and I worked on it a little bit. Other than that I did a few light arm excercises, Tom House video, some core strength excercises and threw a little bit. Overall a below average day”
Hey man! Like the name! Got a son carries it too…he pitches also 8) .
I’ll tell ya, coming back from injury is a lonely time. All of your buddies are out “doin” stuff. Keep in mind that it’s important to get completely back to “right”. A 15 yr old thinks he’s bullet proof so to speak. Listen carefully to all of the people who are trying to help right now so you can heal completely…and with the new mechs be stronger. Most of all and easiest to forget about is your parents…or whoever has to haul you to the doctor and physical therapist…keep in mind they are going through this with you and try to remember how thoughtful they are and how tough it is for a parent to go through this too…I’m sure they want you to do the thing you love and are concerned big time about your injury. Make sure you can communicate what you need, by way of treatment or therapy and make sure you can tell them honestly about your pain, where it is and how intense it is…this is very important Andy!
You have my best wishes on a speedy recovery so you can get back at it. It’s great that you are using your time wisely and watching that House video…he really is outstanding when it comes to arm health issues…learn all you can and if you don’t understand something he says, ask Roger or Laflippen or NPA Pitcher on the forums, they are all great guys and are affiliated with House in one way or another.
