Mike W. - PFT exercises for post-op EPF?

Posted by T. Hurst on 8/25/00 at 19:37 (026224)

I had epf both feet a month ago and I have a Personal Foot Trainer. Can you recommend any exercises which might enhance my recovery?

Do the ones that strengthen the peroneal brevis tendons . This is the tendon that attaches to the base of the 5th metatarsal bone. . You need to strengthen the muscles that support the lateral aspect of the foot. Look in Mike's book that came with the pft. Great picture with clear explanations.
