Achilles At-Home Therapy

Along with Physical Therapy, a home exercise program will be given to perform on days therapy is not scheduled and after discharged from the clinics care. The HEP will have pictures and descriptions of each exercise to perform in order to increase range of motion, increase strength, and decrease pain. Heat or ice may be used after exercising as needed for 10-20 minutes at a time.

Ginger Harper: Achilles Tendon Tear

Ginger Harper is a patient in our Spring Hill clinic.  The week before Christmas, she was in the attic and fell through the ceiling.  She thought she just bruised her ankle so she didn’t go the doctor for a little while.  But after enough time and pain, the doctor required an MRI, only to discover that Ginger had a torn Achilles tendon and a large bone spur on her ankle.
