Hi i am just a guy who broke his arm in a motorcycle accident, who wanted to make a diary of sorts to help people trying to gain back strength as quickly as possible. I will record my progress daily. We'll see how this goes.
Yesterday was my first day out of a splint which I wore for 7 weeks. I tried to extend my arm as much as possible a few times throughout the day and bend it as far as possible. Roatation of the wrist and movement of the fingers is vital to reduce swelling in the hand.
This morning I woke up with reduced swelling in the hand and wrist. Wrist is a little tender today and I will continue to test the extremes. Pain and discomfort is normal when pushing the limit.
