therapist proud of me!!

I went to physical therapy (P.T.) today. She's so proud of me. My walking is pretty good. Now I have to work on not thinking about my walking while I walk. and doing it faster. I have more range of motion. I'm working on moving my arm away from my body. I have to worry about this thing called Spasticity is a condition in which certain muscles are continuously contracted. This contraction causes stiffness or tightness of the muscles and may interfere with movement, speech, and manner of walking. Spasticity is usually caused by damage to the portion of the brain or spinal cord that controls voluntary movement. That is why my fingers are always curled in. I have to always straightening out my fingers. but even that is getting better.
all is well!!!! --Riza
