Getting Mobility Back For Zac!

In August, Zachary dislocated his ring finger at school playing kickball. It’s been a hard few months for him in hand therapy trying to get mobility back. Unfortunately, his finger was “stuck” and he couldn’t get more than 50 degrees range of motion, so off to hospital he went.

Well, blow me down if it didn’t just take ten minutes with a local anaesthetic and the plastic surgeon to get in past where it was stuck!

Zachary got back to his room where he enjoyed a nice lunch and cup of tea before we needed to go back to the hand therapist for an aggressive session while the anaesthetic was still effective.
