I’ve been seeing Thane for my chronic feet issues, bunions have taken over my feet and I have had chronic bursitis because of the overcrowding of my metatarsals for almost 2 years, Thane tried everything to get me back on my feet comfortably. Unfortunately, for me surgery on both feet was necessary. I have completed my first of two grueling surgeries (December 5, 2016) the surgery itself was a bunionectomy with a joint fusion, bursitis removal and some ligament work…the first two weeks were absolute hell, physically and mentally. I consider myself super lucky that while my husband was in to see Thane for his weekly appointment – Thane told him to have me call and book in for an apt at the two-week mark…for me that appointment was the absolute game changer. That night my pain was substantially decreased, I had a set of exercises to focus on, some light massage to increase blood flow and decrease pain, I now was able to take my cast off with the purpose of actively working towards my recovery, I had at this point officially begun to heal with purpose. I saw my surgeon for my post op assessment 6.5 weeks post op, I was walking crutch free (for several weeks at this point because again – Thane encouraged me to start heel walking (I did not want to) to promote bone health and to just get going…my surgeon was very impressed with the speed of my recovery and I have since been walking cast free in my home, 2 weeks ahead of schedule. Every time I hit a milestone in my recovery – Thane is in my ear (even when he’s not around) encouraging me to try harder go further, do the exercises! Physio with Physio Plus really does ensure that you are working towards your optimal health with your needs, and your best recovery possible in mind…Did I mention I was also encouraged to book a massage with Chris? I had a massage focused on my legs and hips…If a girl could purr. I have the exact same surgery coming up for my other foot…before I had my first physio apt I was having some pretty major anxiety about it, now I know if I can make it to my first physio apt that I will be just fine – If any of you are having Bunion surgery – do yourself a favour and make an apt 2 weeks post op apt.
