In brief: Theraband

If your foot/ ankle is stiff after cast immobilization then rom / strengthening exercises can begin.
We generally show our patients how to work on gentle range of motion of their ankle and subtalar joint. We also show them theraband ( rubber band stretch materiel in different resistances)exercises they can do @ home. Also'stork' or balance training can be done. See a pt for home instructions.! gl!
