So, I got started with my Polish physical therapy yesterday. My insurance woes are all taken care of and I am good to go. Now all I have to do is get a Polish driver's license (new law) and I am fully part of Poland!
Therapy was very interesting. I sometimes think that this culture wants to get everyone used to being seen in their underwear! Ha! Ha! In order for the therapist to move my arm, my shirt had to be off. Weird. While this was happening. No fewer than 6 medical people came in to consult with my therapist. The interesting thing about it, is that no one looked at me. They were all very discrete in what I was not wearing! :) Part of this culture. They don't care what you are wearing or what you look like.
I have therapy every day this week. I have already gained 15º more range of motion from just one session. The therapist, Tomek, is nice and speaks English. We had a great conversation about his life in America a few years ago and his view of the US medical system. I look forward to more conversations with him along with more good pain. Today I get to have magnetic therapy. I'll let you know how that one goes.
