Let Our Physical Therapist Treat Your Achilles Tendon Rupture

Physical therapy is an important part of Achilles tendon rupture treatment and recovery. It is important to understand that Achilles tendon rupture may be treated surgically or non-surgically depending on the extent of your injury. A CAM walker/boot will most likely be prescribed with a potential heel lift for comfort and to help unload the tendon. In the case of Achilles tendon rupture, you will most likely be restricted from putting your full body weight through your foot for approximately 6 weeks and your doctor will monitor your healing process until you are ready to begin a walking program.

A physical therapist is a movement expert who provides hands-on treatment and education to patients with physical disorders or injuries. Patients are prescribed movement patterns that are appropriate for their specific needs. An evidence-based exercise protocol is a valuable tool for treating Achilles tendon rupture and maintaining your ankle strength. 

Your exercise program should also target the functional and biomechanical characteristics of the hip, knee, and ankle joints. Physical therapy for Achilles tendon injuries has been scientifically proven to help patients recover from Achilles tendon rupture more efficiently than on their own. During the first stage of treatment, your therapist will focus on reducing pain and restoring the range of motion to your ankle joint. Your therapist will also prescribe exercises that improve flexibility and mobility that you can do at home in between treatment sessions. 

Once your pain levels improve, a strengthening program involving all of the ankle and lower leg muscles will follow. You may also be recommended an orthotic device, that can be placed in your shoe in order to relieve some pain and tension. If you’re experiencing pain and discomfort while performing activities, consult our physical therapist to alleviate the pain.
