An 80 year old male injured his Achilles tendon in 2012. He tried numerous interventions during the intervening four years, with limited success, until he commenced physical therapy which included the Treadwell® System. He stated that he had severly reduced his ambulation for the last few years. Any activities requireing walking more than a short distance were eliminated, including when planning activities with his wife. This included curtailing his daily dog walking.
He was referred for outpatient physical therapy utilizing the Treadwell® System. He achieved pain free status during ambulation within several weeks returning to activities that include walking distances. Being able to walk his dog again is one of life's little pleasures regained.
