02 Jun Bengal’s Leon Hall Recovers from Torn Achilles Tendon
Cincinnati Bengals’ cornerback Leon Hall has been out with a torn Achilles tendon since October, but will be back in time for summer training camp. His rehabilitation has been advancing as scheduled, and last week he was able to participate in a team workout.
“What can I do? I can do it all, actually,” said Hall. “I feel comfortable pretty much doing anything, whether it’s straight ahead, lateral type stuff, jumping, landing. I think I’m pretty good to go with almost everything.”
The 29-year-old is familiar with the rehabilitation process, since he tore his other Achilles tendon in December of 2011. He recovered from the first tear in time for training camp, and played in the following season without traces of injury.
Athletes who sustain injuries to the feet or ankles often undergo physical rehabilitation. If you are suffering from a sports-related injury, talk to podiatrist Dr. Brian Koludrovich D.P.M. of Marymount Podiatry. Dr. Koludrovich will provide the care that you need.
Foot Rehabilitation for Athletes
Injured athletes are always looking for better, faster ways to aid their recoveries and return to the sports they love. Podiatrists and physical therapists are often consulted to help injured athletes can get back on the field as soon as possible. But rehabbing an injury is just as serious as the injury itself, and going through physical therapy or rehabilitation is often necessary to keeping that injury at bay.
Sports Therapist or Physical Therapist?
If an athlete gets a foot injury, it is essential to receive foot rehabilitation to ensure proper healing. Sports therapists are more focused on athletic-related injuries than general physical therapists. It is important for an athlete to become healed properly because if they attempt to get back into their game before they are physically well, they could re-aggravate the original injury or even suffer a new one due to their weakened state.
Physical Therapy Gives Hope
Physical therapy helps to keep athletes as active as they are physically capable, which will get them ready to return to the field once their feet become healed.
