Post-Operative Achilles Tendon Repair

What Is It?

This 26 week post-operative protocol from WorkSafe BC provides a guideline for rehabilitation and goals for recovery following an achilles tendon repair.

Many exercise recommendations include range of motion, strengthening, proprioception, sport specific drills and a guideline to help determine when it is most appropriate to introduce each of them.
