Restore balance following injury or surgery.

WEEKLY PHYSICAL THERAPY VIDEOS PUT TOGETHER BY REAL ORTHOPEDIC SPECIALISTS TO HELP YOU RECOVER AND STAY INJURY-FREE.

 

This exercise is intended to assist in restoring balance following injury or surgery.

The unique features of the Bauerfeind AchilloTrain ankle support help to support the Achilles tendon and reduce pain experienced there, easing the performance of exercise and everyday activities.

Choose a flat, level surface. Begin standing upright on feet spread hip-width apart. Shift weight onto the foot of the leg to be exercised. With the free foot reach forward, backward, backward diagonally inside and to the side. With each movement of the free foot, the knee of the weight-bearing leg bends.

Perform this exercise using slow, carefully-controlled movement.

AchilloTrain Ankle Support

Bauerfeind’s AchilloTrain® braces and supports relieve pain and stabilize the Achilles tendon without restricting your mobility. This soft brace is ideal for post-surgery therapy, tendinitis, inflammation around the tendon and pain in the back of the heel.
