I went to the physical therapist today (Loudoun Physical Therapy in Leesburg, VA), and got a pretty positive diagnosis. They don’t seem to think I’ve torn or broken anything, and feel that the injury is nothing more than a really, really bad pull or strain on the tendon (although we’re going to watch it over the next 1-2 weeks and hope for progress).
For now, the plan is to limit use to activities that produce no pain, do bi-weekly physical therapy sessions with Loudoun PT to promote and speed recovery, and to stay off the wall for 4-6 weeks (ugh). Looking forward to seeing what types of exercises they will have me doing to get me back in tip-top shape. I am hoping I can get into the gym and do some other exercises though… possibly work on my core strength, upper body strength, and endurance. Trying to look at the setback as a blessing in disguise!
