Ann L. – Ankle Fracture
Ann's ankle fracture recovery
After she underwent surgery for a bicycle-accident ankle fracture, Ann's surgeon instructed her to wear a boot and not put any weight on her foot but approved her aquatic therapy with the Hydroworx 350 underwater treadmill.
After 2 1/2 weeks of weekly sessions, and performing her aquatic program in her own pool at home, she was able to walk on land independently. Her surgeon noticed much improvement in her mobility at her first follow up visit after starting aquatic therapy.
She soon progressed to a land-based therapy program and after 11 sessions graduated with a 90-95% overall improvement. Ann achieved her goals ahead of schedule and was able to leave for a trip to see her family in the mainland.
