Monty fractured his ankle during rehearsals for Dancing On Ice in 2017. After receiving treatment at Milton Keynes University Hospital with Mr Atif Malik, Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon, Monty then received physiotherapy at BMI The Saxon Clinic.
Mr Malik said: “Monty sustained a fracture to his distal fibula. He required an Open Reduction/Internal Fixation operation of his fracture, and was placed into a plaster following this. He is currently non-weight bearing and completing exercises to ensure that once he is out of the plaster, he limits the amount of muscle wasting due to the injury.”
Monty underwent several months of physiotherapy rehabilitation at BMI The Saxon Clinic. Monty said: "Being a sportsman, running all the time, swimming, doing lots of physical activities, I wasn't able to do all that with my injury.
"Mr Malik referred me to Claire Mannion for physio. She has a no-nonsense attitude. At the start of every session she would let me have time in my own space and then crack on with the sessions, and I think that really helped me to have a positive outlook on the rehab."
Monty's sessions consisted of a variety of treatments to build strength and increase the range of movement in his ankle. He was also able to use the AlterG anti-gravity treadmill. The treadmill allows patients to reduce the weight going through their bodies as they exercise through the use of NASA technology.
Since his treatment, Monty is back to playing cricket and has featured as a contestant in Celebrity Masterchef 2018.
