Ankle dislocation rehab protocol
Distal fibular fracture and deltoid ligament repair

General considerations
Patient will be walking with crutches and touchdown (toe-touch) weight bearing on the surgical leg for 4 - 6 weeks post-op.
Patient will be in a removable boot for 6 weeks or longer, pending x-rays.
Avoid unnecessary walking or standing for the first 2-3 weeks to control swelling and pain.
Ice ankle/foot 3-5 times (15 minutes each time) per day to control swelling and inflammation.
Elevate leg above the heart as much as possible to control swelling and inflammation.
Come out of boot twice daily for 20 minutes each time to allow skin to breathe and to promote skin healing.
Clean skin with wipe while out of boot.
Keep cast and liners very clean to avoid infections. Wipe down inside plastic of boot daily with alcohol and wash the liner every other day.
No ankle range of motion exercises for 4 weeks. Ankle isometrics inside the boot should be done daily.
No impact or cutting exercises/activities for 3 months post-op.
M.D. follow-up visits at Day 1, Month 1, Month 6 and Year 1 post-op.
Weeks 1 - 4:
M.D. visit at day 1 post-op to change dressing and review home program.
Start ankle isometrics inside the boot immediately post-op. Do 5 repetitions of 5 second contractions. Repeat this 5x per day.
No ankle range of motion exercises for 4 weeks.
Nurse appointment at day 14 for suture removal and check-up.
Gait training with crutches to minimize compensations and to enforce touchdown weightbearing status on the surgical leg.
Exercises:
Toe curls and toe spreads
Quad-sets with straight-leg raises
Gluteal sets
Well-leg biking
Upper body training
Weeks 4 - 6:
Follow-up x-ray at week 4 to monitor healing.
Pending x-ray findings, may start partial weightbearing still using crutches and walking boot.
Can start using AirCast Stirrup splint for sleeping only instead of the walking boot.
Start ankle partial range of motion (ROM) and non-weightbearing to partial weightbearing ankle isotonic exercises.
Soft tissue treatments for swelling, mobility and healing.
Weeks 6 - 8:
Follow-up x-ray at week 6.
Pending x-ray findings, may start weightbearing as tolerated and progressive weaning of assistive devices (single crutch to cane to no device, if necessary).
Can wean off boot and use AirCast Stirrup instead.
Gait training to normalize movement patterns.
Start to seek full ankle range of motion per patient tolerance and without flare-ups.
Start weightbearing strength and balance exercises.
Begin joint mobilizations to seek full range of motion.
Weeks 8 - 12:
Increase functional weightbearing exercises and activities. Avoid impact and cutting activities until week 12.
Can start to wean off AirCast Stirrup if the patient has enough dynamic control and stability of the ankle.
Aim for ankle range of motion to be full by week 12.
Continue with mobilizations.
Weeks 12 and beyond:
Start sport-specific training.
Increase the intensity of strength, balance, coordination and functional training for gradual return to activities and sports.
Return to specific sports is determined by the physical therapist through functional testing specific to the targeted sport.

Checked Yahoo, didn't realize the season started so soon. (I've been watching preseason highlights the last two weeks or so, figured actual season started next week or so). Saw the Hayward headline. Not as gruesome as PG-13's, but pretty nasty. Always gotta ask yourself if it's worth leaving your feet, especially with two players on defense in such close proximity.

:pity:

Fractured ankle, so I guess it's not so bad as it could've been. Looked nasty, though. Wonder if Kyrie feels at fault for it. Hayward ain't really known as a leaper, especially with LBJ nearby. Crazy decision there. Hope this doesn't taint his ankle for the rest of his career. Not sure how ankle injuries go, but even Lonzo's worrying me with his freaking ankle problems so early.

...Wonder who'll win the Rockets/Warriors shootout. Condolences to Hayward and the Celtics. Time for Kyrie to put them on his back and keep them winning until he recovers. Not sure if they can win tonight, but we'll see as it's close.

This is the sloppiest basketball game you could've imagined. Cavs have no idea who's supposed to do what. Wade was covering Horford, Rose was covering Jaylen.. just a total mess. Lue should have seen this coming. Needs to stop being pals with everyone and just lay it down. Too much offense, not enough of anything else.

You guys have to understand, outside of the Warriors, which contender had this much time to get things back into form? Most contenders MADE legitimate moves to better their roster. Maybe Spurs but they haven't had time to patch things up with Kawhi being injured right now. Rockets made a huge move adjusting with CP3. Cavs went total rehaul. OKC basically is a new team offensively. It's going to be some damn sloppy basketball but this is what the Warriors created. It'll take time to gel.

Apparently, some Cavs players really hated Kyrie getting a video tribute and so the Cavs scratched it off. Deservingly so, tbh. Kyrie wanted out for for a petty reason. He's known to be an isolationist - which is why his leadership abilities is lacking. And with what he has been saying about the Cleveland...
