Left stiff in the morning

Hello everyone!

Long time no write! Well my achilles and I are doing fine now. Just got back from my honeymoon and i had a great time at my wedding. My leg held up well while I was cutting a rug at my reception. Lol. Question: Does anyone elses achilles feel real stiff first thing in the morning? When i get up i do stretching and leg lifts to get it feeling normal before I hop in the shower. Thoughts?

  1. Sounds great!

    I’ve heard about that morning stiffness very often here. After my first ATR and surgery (and months of healing), my day always started with a 2-leg heel raise, which would make my recovered ankle “snap”. It still usually does that, 8.5 years later.

    My second-ATR ankle, non-op, doesn’t snap, but it still feels looser and better after it moves around some — not unlike the rest of my (65-yr-old) body!

    After my main PT finished with me this time, at 4-ish months(?), he handed me over to a gym-routine colleague for the rest of rehab. I didn’t stick with it, but she gave me one trick that I still like: before doing heel lifts or other strenuous leg exercises, do some “prancing” to warm up. By “prancing” I mean just walking around with an exaggerated knee lift and an exaggerated ankle plantarflexion, like a horse doing a show walk. It feels like a very nice loosener-up!


  2. Looking stylish is not about being fashionable and keeping up with the latest trends. It is about look and feeling great and finding great clothes that suit your personality, lifestyle, figure, colouring and budget.

  3. I was having the same problem and I PT told me to rock back and forth on both feet before trying to walk. Helped alot.
