Crushed Heel

My sister was in an auto accident February 16, 2009. The wreck was not her fault and of course, the guy that hit her had no insurance. She found a doctor that did her surgery but because she did not have insurance they did not give her therapy. She has been in a wheelchair for 3 months and they just put a boot on her foot. They told her she can do therapy on her on. Do you have any suggestions of what therapy consists of for a heeling crushed heel?
Thanks so much.
