Re: PTTD Post-Op Partial Weight Bearing & Therapy
I had early stage 2 and had calcaneal osteotomy, 1st tmt fusion and gastroc lengthening 5 months ago. I had PT start once I was weightbearing as tolerated in the walking boot which was essentially PWB.
Therapy progresses you through the stages of WBing to get you back into normal shoes and a normal gait pattern. They will focus on improving your foot/ankle ROM, strength, balance and walking capacity through manual therapy and exercise activities. They may also use modalities such as electrical stimulation, ultrasound and ice/heat as needed.
Hope this helps and all the work now will pay-off soon.
