🐄 Calf raises in THREE positions. Feet neutral, turned out and then turned in. Try to get 20 each with minimal break between. Foam roller is for balance. Should feel a good burn 🔥
💃 The gastrocnemius has two heads, medial and lateral. Turning the feet in different positions biases the different heads 😊🙃 You can vary the order, but try to go through at least two rounds!! 👍
calls my calves, cows 🐮😑

Achilles Tendon Rupture Video 1!💥⚽️
This patient has an Achilles tendon rupture. You can see in this clinical exam how the foot doesn’t work properly because the toes are not able to point down when the calf muscle is squeezed. The Achilles raises the heel off the ground and allows push off when walking or running. Because this is a young athlete we chose to fix the rupture. You will see in the following videos how we did that.😎
Achilles tendon ruptures can be treated nonoperatively as well. Usually we do that in older and more sedentary patients or patients with significant comorbidities or other medical problems. These patients are usually treated in a cast or a boot.
Anatomic note - The calf muscle is also called the gastrocnemius. This turns into the Achilles tendon which then attaches to the back of the heel which is also called the calcaneus. ————

“The wrath sing, goddess, of Peleus’ son, Achilles, that destructive wrath which brought countless woes upon the Achaeans, and sent forth to Hades many valiant souls of heroes, and made them themselves spoil for dogs and every bird; thus the plan of Zeus came to fulfillment, from the time when1 first they parted in strife Atreus’ son, king of men, and brilliant Achilles.” #trojanwars #iliad #achilles #hector #helenoftroy
Interesting day. 4 x neuromas, 1 x bursitis, 1 x Achilles tendonosis, 1 x sessadmoiditis, 1 x very strange boney change from a nail gun injury and 1 x random one that we ended up sending for MRI.
Achille annuì e si chinò sulla lira. Non ebbi neanche il tempo di pensare al suo intervento. Quando le sue dita iniziarono a toccare le corde, tutti i pensieri mi sfuggirono. Il suono era puro e dolce come acqua, brillante come limoni. Quella musica era diversa da qualsiasi altra avessi mai sentito. Aveva il calore di un fuoco, la consistenza dell'avorio levigato. Placava e confortava allo stesso tempo. Mentre suonava, qualche capello gli ricadde sugli occhi. Erano sottili come le corde della lira, e splendevano.
