Hi, as I had posted previously, I went thru PT for 4 months from Sept-Dec. And started PT again in April and added on OT in May.
For my last PT appt another therapist was working with me because mine was out. My therapist is also the manager there. She said she wanted her to do my evaluation again to see if I've reached my goals. At the start, my upper extremities strengths were about 3/5 and lower extremities range from 2/5-3/5.
My upper extremity strengths are now 3+/5. And they told me that I don't have to go anymore since I've met my goal. I was like, "What?!" How can this be? They only put my goal that I needed to improve to 3+/5 for upper extremity strength? However, I'm still not there for side to side neck and for my shoulder stabilizers. She just said that they can talk to OT and add that on, for her to work on with me.
AND there were no goals set for my lower extremities. She said that they're not going to review my lower extremities because there aren't any goals set. I remember my PT therapist saying that she wasn't going to put any goals for my lower extremities regarding pain, because it hasn't gone away, since when I started back in Sept. But I didn't know that she wasn't going to make any goals for my lower extremity strengths. I think they're basically saying, that I'm not going to improve, so they're not pursuing any work in that area.
Sorry this is so long. I just feel kind of hopeless. :-(
