My first day of therapy went relatively easy. I talked about the injury and where it hurts, then the PT used an ultrasound to reduce the swelling in my ankle. He then "massaged" my foot. I don't think it was actually a massage, more like feeling the muscles and tendons, but it still felt kind of good. He took some baseline measurements of how far my injured foot pointed and flexed compared to the uninjured one, gave me red tubing to take home to do some exercises with, then iced the foot while stimulating it "electronically" - the device was actually battery operated. Not too scary. Yet.
