Movement analysis after achilles rupture and repair – 30/9/17

So now I am out of the boot and am starting to move around like a normal person, my rehab proper starts.  And like a proper scientist, I want to set a benchmark to see where my left ankle is at the moment, what its limitations are and how they change over time.

So here are a couple of movement benchmarks.  We got the squat, walking, reverse lunge and a measure of ankle mobility…

So I had my first full day without the boot on yesterday and did some good walking too and from the gym.  I was concentrating on walking as properly as possible (rolling through my foot and not hobbling with a super stiff ankle).  And it all worked well!  I was so happy with how it went!  I could feel both my achilles and calf working nicely!

Achilles repair – The boot is off!

Had my last appointment with the consultant this afternoon.  All looked well and he was happy with the scar and the movement in my ankle and the amount of pressure I could put through the ball of my foot.

So that’s it from him!  The tendon is nicely fixed and now I just need to make sure I don’t snap it again (10% chance of a previously ruptured Achilles going again) and regaining the strength I’ve lost over the last (nearly) 3 months.

Healthy eating and nutrition

The Craven district council are starting a couple of new Healthy Lifestyle courses and I’m running them!  Woo Hoo!

These courses are great, even if I do say so myself.  They help people take control of their eating habits and weight for the long term.  No short term supplements and over reliance on expensive and dodgy potions.  One goal is to educate people on what they should/shouldn’t be eating.  But most importantly, how they can do it.

We know what we need to do.  But we don’t always know how to do it.  And sometimes it’s just really difficult to do.
