Before I began the physical therapy, the therapist took my vital signs
and found my blood pressure was 130/90. I know that trauma and pain can trigger an increase in blood pressure so that did not concern me too much, but then the therapist took my pulse from various points: wrist, neck, and under my arms. He had difficulty finding my pulse under my arms and expressed concern about it. I am not sure what he is implying, since I obviously have a pulse.
