As a New Hampshire native and huge Red Sox fan, I was dismayed to hear about David Ortiz’ recent injury. Ortiz, also known as Big Papi, was placed on the disabled list with a strained right Achilles tendon. This injury, along with Plantar Fasciitis, is a common cause of heel pain. The designated hitter luckily did not rupture or tear the tendon, a second MRI confirmed. He is a 6 time All Star with 2 World Series championships.

With appropriate care, including rest and physical therapy, he will proabably be out for as little as 2 weeks. Professional althetes like Ortiz are lucky enough to get great care. His treatment will probably include iceing the injuried tendon, anti-inflammatories, and off-loading physical thereapy. Off-loading physical therapy for Ortiz will include exercises like water workouts, heel raises, and maybe even a removable cast or brace to take weight off of the tendon.

With all of the injuries in baseball, football season can’t come soon enough. Ortiz’ wife is from Wisconsin, and he can occasionally be spotted at Green Bay Packers games. He even made this list of the Top 15 Celebrity Green Bay Packers fans.

Sharing is caring!
