5.5 Week Progress

February 19, 2013 | |

I have been going to PT once a week.  Today, the therapist told me that I was healing quickly and it was time to go faster than what the surgeon prescribed.

He massaged and worked my achilles for 15 minutes.  He stretched it pass neutral and it felt like my achilles was going to rip again but he assured me that it was good for me.

Next week (after week 6), I will be starting full weight bearing PT exercises.

I asked my PT about using the hinged boot feature before going into 2 shoes but he said that was unnecessary and I should go straight to the shoes when he thinks I’m ready.

    Good for you man. Once you start hitting FWB exercises everything starts to speed up for awhile. My PT insisted that I use the hinge boot feature and I did for almost a month, but m recovery has been and still is a bit on the slow side.

    And I loved spending a coupla weeks in the hinged boot as a smooth transition to 2 shoes. You’ll probably get to the goal line OK regardless.

    Yeah, thanks….I will probably use the hinged boot feature for a few days before shoes…I don’t see how a hinged boot won’t help me transition.
