MANILA -- Actor JC de Vera is currently recovering after he underwent surgery for a ruptured right Achilles tendon.
In his Instagram post on Sunday, the actor posted a video clip of his physical therapy.
"I am literaly back to zero. No strength at all on my right leg. It really frustrates me lalo na alam kong before this happened, I go to the gym all the time and I make sure that I’m productive every day. Pero nawala ngayon lahat because of my injury. Well, baby steps lang talaga muna. Tiis-tiis lang. I just want to share with you guys my exercise routine for the next 2 weeks -- how to protect my repaired tendon with these exercises, how to decrease the swelling, how to make my range of motion big again, how to take away the fear and trauma," de Vera wrote in the caption.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Achilles tendon rupture is an injury that affects the back of your lower leg. "The Achilles tendon is a strong fibrous cord that connects the muscles in the back of your calf to your heel bone. If you overstretch your Achilles tendon, it can tear (rupture) completely or just partially," it said in its website.
De Vera, who recently appeared in hit series "Pamilya Ko," is one of the stars of "Banana Sundae."
