MLS Player Achilles Tendon Recovery at Fortius
Using the underwater treadmill, resistance jets, underwater cameras and some creativity, Jay was able to closely mimic land movements and correct any gait patterns immediately. The beginning stages of rehab included things such as simple walking, heel raises and single leg balance. Once Jay mastered those, he was able to move on to more dynamic movements for the ankle like lunges, side steps and karaoke. When he was cleared for further progression, they focused on active range of motion protocols.
