Jane Batchelor is an ex PE teacher who has always enjoyed a range of sports.
However she fully ruptured her Achillies tendon when playing netball, and had an operation the same day to re-connect it.
Here she talks about how everyday life became a challenge, and because she was determined not to take the time off work, subsequently found it hard to find the time to complete all the rehab exercises she should have done (due to both lack of time and energy)
She advises how in hindsight she should have taken the time off to allow her self to recover fully, as the achillies is still a weak area for her, despite now being fully back to her sport and regularly going skiing, mountain biking and playing netball
She also discussed her experience of suffering an ongoing bad back as a result of returning to sport too quickly after child birth. However after seeing a physio and completing very simple but regular exercises, she is now fully recovered and no longer suffers stiffness in her back
In this second video Jane gives practical tips which she learnt as a result of the achillies injury, and recommends the Aqua Shield waterproof cast cover for those who want to swim as part of their rehab, or even just to make bathing much easier!! http://www.aquashieldusa.com
