spinal-cord injury

Another Week in Paradise day 2; physio

AWP PT.3.2; more physio. I am stretching the legs while my left hand is moving cones. Seems easy perhaps, except my left hand has no movement. My right hand, which does move and provide me a weak grip, is strapped to ensure I do not cheat. I am lifting the cones with what is called a tenodesis grip. Hard to explain, but involves the curling of the fingers that occurs automatically when the wrist moves backward. Try it yourself. Let your fingers go floppy and pull the wrist up and down and see what happens.
