Achilles Tendon Injury


A Client experience when rehabilitating from Achilles Tendon Injury told in her own words…

My Achilles Tendon Recovery.

I sustained a very sore Achilles tendon injury from playing badminton.  My leg was extremely sore and I had difficulty walking.  I was referred to a physio via my GP following examination confirmation of Achilles tendinopathy. 

The treatment I received seemed very limited and improvement was very slow.  Due to this a large degree of frustration and discomfort, it guided me to seek alternative physiotherapy advice.

This lead me to Abigail Weber at The Markland Clinic.  I received what I can only describe as a detailed assessment identifying the exact location of my discomfort and problem.

I received a deep massage which I understand was transverse frictions. 

Despite this being uncomfortable at the time of treatment I felt an immediate improvement in my pain.  I was given exercises which were linked to everyday activities and whenever I brushed my teeth I also exercised my Achilles tendon by heal raises.   

Abigail recognised that I have a busy lifestyle and struggled to integrate extra activities and therefore linking it to something I already to do played a huge role in my improvement.

This along with some further treatment sped my recovery up and I have since returned to normal day to day life.  I am now able to enjoy my badminton and walk my dogs without having to worry about the pain. 

Despite being pain-free I continue to do my heal raises. 

I highly recommend Abigail and I’m very confident in referring friends and family to her.

Thank you very much, Abigail, for all your help and guidance.
