Medical Therapeutic Yoga for Achilles Tendon Rupture: The Missing Link in Rehabilitation by Shelly Prosko

MalasanaYoga and the Achilles Tendon

After sustaining a ruptured achilles tendon, Shelly was able to use her knowledge of medical therapeutic yoga and physical therapy to set herself up for the best recovery possible. She documents her journey of healing in a blog post and in her Youtube channel. Read about her recovery and view pictures of her yoga therapy on Ginger’s personal website.

“As a Physical Therapist and Yoga Therapist for over 16 years, I am aware of the benefits and use of yoga therapy and some of the limitations of our current healthcare system. However, after sustaining a traumatic orthopedic injury myself, I had the opportunity to be a patient and experience first hand what it was like to go through our health care system.”
