Another trip to the gym. Tendon is much better, but definitely nowhere near full strength. Big ass shoe is to help with the 🚣‍♀️. Stomach getting a bit too voluptuous. Building up stamina and core strength, alongside upper body work for posture and confidence. Ambulating without the shoe and crutches is still tricky, so having upper body and core strength is a psychological benefit. . . . #gym #cardio #corestrength #workout #achillesrupture #achillestendon #moonshoe #kakinenek #rowing #situps #pressups #gemuk #buncet #physiotherapy
🎤 Oooh we’re halfway there. 🎶 Three months since I ruptured my Achilles. Three months to go. Well, maybe. Maybe not. The first two weeks post-boot were challenging. I felt overwhelmed by “the rest” of my recovery and would get extremely anxious not knowing how to measure progress if I didn’t have a definite countdown of weeks or days until the next step. • Now, 12 weeks post-op I’m learning that measuring my progress doesn’t need to come in the form of a countdown. • Progress means facing your commuting fear and taking the MTR during rush hour. Progress means staying out dancing until 5am while your crutches sit on the sideline. Progress means the sudden realization you’re limping less than the week before, or feeling a muscle wake up in your leg, and trying to contain your happy tears at work. Progress means starting to finally feel like yourself again mentally, even if you’re still a work-in-progress physically. • I occasionally get overwhelmed and scared about what lies ahead. How long will it take for my leg to feel normal again? Will the thought of box jumps always send my heart rate skyrocketing? Will I start playing soccer again before I’ve fully converted to saying football (thanks, Hong Kong)? • Yes, sometimes it’s hard not to let the Pandora’s box of unknowns get to me. But instead of counting down - I’ll keep on counting up in progress, whatever form it may be. • @kieranrogers_physio #achillesheal #achilles #achillesrupture #achillesrecovery #injury #injuryrecovery #surgeryrecovery #12weekspostop #babysteps #tbt #aonangbeach #krabi #thailand #thisprobablyshouldvebeenablogpost

This guys first time outside in 2 weeks 🎉🎉! #freshair #achillesrupture #canceledvacation
Week 15 post surg - This one was a surprisingly hard milestone for me. Got the go ahead at 12 weeks but finally got the hang of it last week- didn’t say anything in case I jinxed it. My sleep is such a fragile thing. Woke up in pain when if first tried to sleep without the boot. Gave up after a few nights. Then couldn’t sleep. Gave it a rest for a week and tried again last week. It worked. Put a soft pillow down to rest it on which seemed to help. #achillesrecovery #achillesrupture #sleepissues #thelittlewinsarebigthings #bootfree #appreciateprogress
Trying to get back after such a devastating injury. #achillesrupture #achilles
At @thecastleclimbingcentre today with @olivetrevor testing out my new @scarpa_uk mountain boots as a way to prepare for trad next week. They are amazing.. I can climb without putting any real stress on my Achilles’ tendon. Great idea Trev! #achillesrupture #tradIsRad
Big milestone - scar tissue broke free at mtn bike race over the weekend. Tendon/ankle moving so much better. Fun gravel ride today. 8.5 mo post #achillesrupture #ridecannondale #tifosioptics #woodenwheelsracing
Haha the gap feels funny as#dandenonghospital #achillesrupture
The swelling is still there in the right ankle. I walked two miles and it felt great! Making a comeback! #comeback #fitfam #achillesrupture #recovery #summer
4 months ago I was in a slump of negativity, trying to wrap my head around being taken out of my routine due to an accident. Physical activity is my stress outlet and not being able to release those emotions in a positive way was difficult for me. Fast forward to today and I'm making strides (no pun intended 😏) in my healing progress. I went rock climbing last week, did my first single leg calf raise, and am getting a bicycle today. During my healing process I decided that I didn't want to get back to where I was, I wanted to surpass myself. So, here's to becoming a better version every day. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #achillesrupture #achilles #roadtorecovery #betterthanyesterday #goodvibesonly #rockclimbing #postop #strongissexy #selfimprovement #sheisnotlost #digitalnomadgirls #travellove #solotraveler #agirlabroad #digitalnomadgirl #discoverbalance #neversettle #girlswhoclimb #physicaltherapy #injuredbutnotbroken #positivemindset #youvegotthis

Milestone Number 2!! Got my cast off, stitches out (yuk), boot on and weight baring as tolerated! Physio starts! I cannot (well i can, but still shocked) how much of my calf has wasted away, my leg looks like a 3 year old arm! Started yellow baby band isometrics today and just feeling my calf contract. Weirdest, weakest sensation ever after 7 weeks of casts, non weight baring and chaos! Feeling positive now!! 3rd milestone is next week when i move to new physio excercises. The week after will be the 4th... my boot gets lowered so i am a stage close to being in a standing position! . . . #physio #achillesrupturerecovery #injuryrehabilitation #achillesrehab #achilles #sportsinjury #achillesrupture #physiogram #rehabilitation #sportsrehab #physiotherapy #sportsrehabilitation #sportrehabilitation #activerehabilitation #sportsinjuryrehab

Week 14 post surg - Finally got out of the city this weekend. #wideopenspaces make me so happy. Just outside of Berry 2.5 hours south of Sydney - which has very special donuts- pic 1. Rolling hills and clean rivers - pic 2. kangaroos - look closely in pic 3 and even better Wombats - pic 4. Lovely day out with my lovely friend @vestasajadi. Randomly met two people who had snapped their Achilles too. Both were walking well, one warned of Keloid scarring.#wombatsaremyfavourite #alotofmypostshavecoffee #happyplace #lovethiscountry #alwayscallaustraliahome #countryair #berrydonutvan #coutrydrives #winterwanders #achilleschats #achillesrupture #achillesrecovery
September: pretend I can still exercise with a moonboot // December: start walking flat footed for the first time // April: can finally hold myself up on tippy toes // June: 100kg front squat 💪🏽💪🏽 Just ticking boxes 📦 ✅ #rehab #achillesrupture @jaydeeh__d @rbtgyms @bodylogicphysio
❗️Achilles Tendinopathy ❗️ The Achilles' tendon is the connective tissue that connects the triceps surae muscle group, or calf muscles, to the calcaneus, or heel bone. The Achilles' tendon is the strongest tendon in the body and absorbs that greatest amount of force daily. The triceps surae is made up of 3 muscles: Gastrocnemius, Soleus, and Plantaris. This muscle group's main muscle action is ankle plantar flexion, but is also responsible for stabilizing the ankle during locomotion, such as walking and running, and absorbing force during high impact activities, such as landing and cutting. 🏀�Achilles' tendinopathy is a very common over use injury that is typically associated with athletes that repetitively perform running and jumping movements. This injury is often characterized by: 👉🏻Pain 👉🏻Impaired performance 👉🏻Swelling in and around the tendon 🚨Stay tuned this week for the rehab series 🚨 _____________________________________________________ This content is for informational purposes only and is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. #achilles #achillesrupture #ankle #fit #fitness #dpt #dptstudent #physicaltherapy #physio #chiropractic #athlete #athletictraining #athletictrainer #fisioterapia #prehab #rehab #mobility #kobe #mambamentality
So much can happen in a year! I'm a Girl Guide leader and we typically have a June camp. Last year, following an Achilles Tendon Rupture, I was in my Air Cast, able to weight bear but needing crutches to walk very far. It was a struggle but I was determined to participate in camp. This year, we had a really active camp which involved rock climbing, archery, horseback riding, zipline (after climbing up a telephone pole with small hand and foot holds), canoeing, orienteering, and a low ropes challenge course. We also played a game of capture the flag kind of idea, but with milk jugs, and I sprinted full out time and time again until my lungs burned!! Not only was I able to participate in it all, I did really well in all of it. I didn't feel my Achilles and even after all the running (I haven't run since before my rupture) I didn't have any pain or swelling. I was literally fine. I can't tell you how good it felt to run. It was so amazing. I did have a little voice in the back of my head wondering if sprinting was really a good idea but soon my competitive nature and the sheer joy of participating and pushing my body and maybe surprising a girl or 2 with how fast leaders can really be, took over and I forgot all about it. I actually feel like I have come out the other side of this injury, a much stronger, more appreciative person. I no longer take things for granted and can find beauty in just being able to take a single step. I am grateful for this injury as it truly showed me how much there is in life to appreciate if we just look for it. #embracethejourney #enjoythejourney #achilles #achillesrupture #achillesrecovery #achillestendon #achillestendonrupture #achillesrehab

How I feel having not left the country (or the house barely) in 6 weeks 🤦🏼‍♀️😳
6/18/2013 was the first #FathersDay for me. Today being the sixth, it was the lamest (literally) of them all as I’m still in my right leg cast from the #AchillesRupture surgery D+8. Thanks to amazon I got myself a little gift to increase my #GripStrength in an attempt to continue my #NinjaTraining without the need to getting out of the bed. Somehow the whole day went by without hearing “Happy Fathers’ Day” except from one mass text that I received from work. Meh.
CAM boot off. Cold beer in hand. On the lake. Yessssss. #achillesrupture #startofsummer #lakelife

Today marks 22 weeks since I ruptured my Achilles’ tendon kickboxing and today marks my first day back at the gym, although not kickboxing. YET. This photo is on the doors at the Y. Happy to be back. Let’s do this. 💪🏽🥊 🔥 #backatit #achillesrupture #getstrong #werk
Progress is about putting one foot in front of the other, am I right? #achillesrupture
I can’t do cardio but I’m killing upper body though. BCAAs are simply magical. #howbaddoyouwantit #itsstillyourmotherfuckingset #exercise #p90x #nutrition #achilles #achillesrupture #recovery
Ain’t nothing stopping me from doing what I like to do! #dwreckless #achillesrupture #foxracing #titleist
Running is basically the only time my #achillesrupture holds me back at this point. My heel still drops when I run. It's getting better every day. It's crazy how long this road is. Its been 14 months now.
