    Triceps going from grade 2 to 3 ??

    I started back at Magee's Outpatient Center today. During my OT eval she said my triceps were at grade 2 - I can 'unhinge' my arm gravity eliminated but can't raise it above my head

    Anybody go from 2 to 3??

    Sounds like a perfect use for some electrical stim. Was that offered? We often find we can get a 2 grade muscle up to a 3 with then, and then you can start to use regular resistive exercise like light weights.

    Biofeedback training is also helpful. Wise.

    They did talk about stimming them. I have a NMES unit, but its not the greatest... And I'm unsure about pad placement. I will make it one of my goals in OT to get it all figured out. I would be so happy if they got to a 3, and then kept going!!

    Wise - What is Biofeedback training? They hooked me up to a Nueromove unit for my tenodesis.

    THANKS!!
