What should physiotherapy consist of?

9 03 2015

I originally ruptured my achilles tendon fully on 22 Nov and followed a conservative approach. I reruptured the tendon in a different place on 21 Dec so had to start the recover process all over again. I had an airboot which came off Weds 4 Feb but did not start Physio/physical therapy until 24 Feb. I have had two appointments which have jst consisted of the physio showing me exercises to do at home. I now have developed an extremely sore heel and foot which the physio said is plantar fasciitas. The pain takes my breath away when i stand on it and does ease with my exercises. Can anyone tell me a bit more about the physio they have at this stage and what I should be expecting? I have so far had no kind of massage or really anyone work specifically on my leg and foot. Is this something that happens further down the line? I am now down to one crutch which I limit using apart from on stairs and longer walks. Any advice would be amazing!!!
