Day #2 of PT

Today I finished day #2 of P.T. It went great! I am getting to range 0 or neutral. I have to take a belt and pull my foot towards me for homework, and I have one of those special skin tape things on my leg to help my muscle to work. I am looking forward to tomorrow!

    How many days a week are you doing PT?

    Hi Ryan! I am at 3 days a week! It is going well, my range of motion is improving and my homework is to take the boot off at home and work on range of motion and use a belt to help pull my ankle for flexion. I am getting better! How are you?

    They cut my PT back to 1-day/week- which I’m OK with. Much of what they do, I can do at home; there’s just a few things (ultrasound, some of the massage) that I am getting uniquely at PT. My rehab these days is mostly coming indirectly, just by using the ankle - hiking, mountain biking, lifting weights, swimming, etc. But, I do need to be a little better about doing the dedicated stuff such as the theraband stretches and movements. The biggest hurdles I see now (besides avoiding a re-rupture) is my dorsi flexibility and basic strength rebuilding; It’s still a little early for me to work either of those very hard. I’m trying to be patient; but not completely succeeding.
