A-Z Journey of a Broken Foot (Lisfranc Injury)

If you’d like to know about my own injury, here’s a link to the inside scoop :) But my daily A-Z posts are more general and informative, just so, if the time comes, you know what someone is going through because, trust me, it’s not ‘just a broken foot!’

PHYSIOTHERAPY - The treatment of disease, injury or deformity by physical methods such as massage, heat treatment and exercise rather than by drugs or surgery. In the USA called physical therapy....... I've had 2 lots of PT, the first after the operation once I was fully weight bearing. This was helpful as I hadn't realised my gait had changed. I had started to walk in a safe and pain free way, but in the long term would have caused other complications. The second time was when I went back after 2 years. In all honesty it wasn't successful, but needed to be tried.

  1. I had to go to PT for carpal tunnel, back in the mid 90s. I never liked it at all. Except for when they'd do the electric stimulation on the muscles. That felt the best.

  2. I've had to go through physical therapy a few times. Luckily, the treatments were successful.

  3. I'm fortunate that I've never had an injury requiring physiotherapy but I understand how important the right therapy can be.

  4. There are several brands of home foot massagers machine to choose from, and each claims to ease pain and rejuvenate tired, aching feet. While many brands do manufacture professional quality foot massagers, there are a few that can end up being a waste of your money. electric foot massager reviews
