For those involved in sports actively, the term Achilles tendon rupture or Achilles tendon injury is not very uncommon. It is one of the most dreaded injuries for any athlete as it keeps you out of action for a fair amount of time. Surgically repaired Achilles tendons are painful, restrict movement and take a long time to heal depending on the severity of the injury. But, if you opt for a physical therapy rehab program, you can easily get back to normal activities.
Physical Therapy Rehabilitation Program
Physical therapy plays an important role in regaining motion, strength, flexibility and normal function following a repair surgery. A personalised rehabilitation program will ensure low risk of tendon re-rupture and other complications. Your therapist will educate, instruct and supervise you facilitating quick recovery.
