Ankle update Day 28 by Steve Sommerfeld

May 5th, 2009 No comments

This week I saw Emma twice for physiotherapy, I can hardly believe the progress I made. With physiotherapy and Q magnet treatment I went from two crutches to one crutch to no crutches in 3 days. The first time I saw Emma, she mobilised the joint and pushed me further than I could go and when I walked out I was walking the best I have with just the one crutch.  I had the proper walking movement only I just had to transfer my weight to the crutch as I walked through the stride.


On the second visit I did roughly an hour of constant exercises that Emma gave me and used the theraband as well to passively move my ankle as well as active.  I then went to see Emma in the afternoon and I could move my knee forward 3 more centimetres over my foot than the previous day.  Which I thought was a huge improvement. I have been wearing 5 Q magnets constantly on my ankle as you can see in the photo’s.

Post Ankle Surgery Progress!

Steve is impressed with the progress of his ankle. Here are some of his comments:

“I haven’t had any painkillers from about 4 days after the surgery”

“I’ve broken legs before and I got back on the bike sooner than expected each time, but not this soon could I hold weight on an ankle after the actual crash and then surgery only 2 weeks ago”.

“The only thing I’ve done differently with this broken ankle is the use of Q-Magnets. It’s really starting to show how well physio and magnets work!”
