So I had my first PT appointment yesterday. The guy worked on stretching my tendon and for some reason I got really hot and felt nauseous. He said this happened because I have not moved my foot in a while so my nervous system was responding to it. I am not so sure of that. I do have a really high pain threshold and am worried that he micht have pushed it too far.
The we did some ROM excersises (Alphabet, moving foot to the sides, ets) and he massaged a bit my toes and the bottom of my foot. It fetl great, but then …
I got home and my ankle got really tight around the calf and tendon area. I had hard time sleaping and by the morning my foot swell more the usual.
Since then, I have been massaging my foot and ankle and doing the ROM excersises (although I think I am the only one who would be able to notice my foot movements at this point). The tightness is gone right now although I can still feel my Achillies. I hope my PT knows what he is doing. He is certainly experienced with other injuries as he did a great job for my husband and the two kids who are all competitive tennis players. So I will continue my excersises and give it some time.
