Sorry to disappoint but no, it isn’t. It just uses science to enhance upon an outdated system of ankle treatment. Most people read about Hem ankle rehab and think that it’s impossible to speed up the retrieve of our body. After an injury, in this case an ankle injury, a period of rest can give the body time to heal itself. While the body is equipped to manager injuries and heal itself, with modern science and knowledge, we can help the body to retrieve more quickly. Like curing disease, losing weight, or anything else we do help out our natural course of action of healing, it’s not a miracle, it’s just being smart. HEM ankle rehab is not about taking pills or a revolutionary new different to RICE. The most important thing about HEM ankle rehab is that it focuses on the rehabilitation of the injured area. After a period of 48 hours, RICE becomes ineffective and can truly be detrimental to recovery. Scar tissue forms in the area which can leave the joint stiff and inclined to re-injury. HEM ankle rehab is about getting fresh blood the twisted ankle, which can clear out scar tissue and blood clots. It is also about moving and exercising the joint to increase flexibility, strengthen, and consequently protect against re-injury.
A few months ago I sprained my ankle running. It was nothing I had to see a doctor for, but it was serious enough that I couldn’t walk for two days. I was preparing to move to a new apartment across town, and decided I didn’t need a moving truck (so I could save some cash). However, after my injury I didn’t know what I was going to do. Friends had work, I hadn’t called the moving company, and I didn’t own a car. I had to make those few taxi rides count or else I’d be spending more on taxi fees than I would have on the movers. I need a way to retrieve fast so I searched by the internet looking for ways to shorten the recovery time of sprained ankles. Almost every site said there was nothing I could do. I could only rest and let it heal itself in time. I didn’t have time. The 48 hour RICE period had already passed, and I didn’t feel right just sitting at home stressing about the move. So, with a bit of skepticism I bought the HEM ankle rehab treatment E book. I think we’re all skeptical about things we buy online. But I thought the 20 dollars was worth a try, and there was a money back guarantee.
It was great. The instructions were clear and there were color pictures to follow. I use the next associate days following Scott Malin’s (the designer of HEM ankle rehab) advice and in three days (total of 5 from the time of injury) I was walking typically, and was able to move by myself – carrying bags, walking up stairs, getting in and out of taxis etc. I couldn’t believe it. Some people don’t retrieve from sprained ankles for months, and here I was moving house after 5 days (which is great for my grade 2 ankle injury)!
I’ll be honest, I nevertheless found the ankle to be tight and a bit sore, It wasn’t till a few more days that I didn’t feel any pain while walking, and two weeks before I was running, but perhaps my degree of sprain was more serious. in spite of, when I consider the money I might have spent on doctors bills, physical therapists, time off work, or just the things I may have missed sitting at home with a sprained ankle, I know that the 20 dollars I use on HEM ankle rehab was worth it. After all, time is money and the quicker you retrieve, the faster you can get back to your normal life.
Maybe you enjoy watching Oprah with your ankle soaring in the air, ticking away the minutes till your body heals itself. For me, I like to take action and get on the road to rehabilitation with HEM ankle rehab.
