Today I saw my podiatrist and he gave me the all clear to boot the day boot in lieu of a sleeping boot that will keep my foot at the proper angle while I sleep. AND I enthusiastically signed up for for physical therapy, which I’m more than a little excited about. I think it’s the way Dr. K put it to me: “So do you have time for PT?” He sold it like it was a luxury and not a requirement for my healing process.
Of course I have time for PT! It’ll be like a a trip to the foot spa, except that it’s the Holzer Clinic Physical Therapy Department. Maybe it’s a little sad, to be so excited about physical therapy, but I see it not so much as rehabbing my Achilles tendon but a month’s worth of twice weekly foot massages. And who couldn’t use a good massage, am I right?
