I am seeing continuing improvement with both strength and balance of my right foot and ankle. I have little to no swelling except in overuse situations. I have improved mobility with minimal pain or discomfort. Balancing and sideways exercises seem to be most helpful at this point.
It no longer hurts when I first get out of bed. It will hurt when I do not wear shoes or wear shoes with insufficient support. The exercises I’ve been given have helped, especially the stretching with elastic bands and on the step. I’ve noticed gradual improvement over time I’ve been in therapy. I believe the ultrasound and especially the deep pressure massage have helped a great deal. The heat and ice I don’t know about, but I’m sure it is part of the program. I’m encouraged by my progress and I’m looking forward to starting a walking program again without hurting my feet.
My feet are a lot better. I have movement in my toes on my left foot that I did not have before. I can walk for short periods without limping (in a store like Target or Costco). The pain isn’t nearly as bad. I think that I am about 80% better.
My ankle is much better from pain of 10 to current pain level of 3. Also, strength of ankle has greatly increased in the past 3 sessions.
Steps are easier to climb and descend. I get maximum extension of my left leg now and do not have pain on extension of the left leg.
