Left Achilles Tendon Repair

The patient in this video is recovering from a left Achilles tendon repair and is progressing very well with therapy! Now that she is out of her walking boot, it is crucial to begin weight bearing again through the left foot to return to normal function!

As the patient walks forward and back, she is focusing on slowly accepting weight through the left leg to ensure that the motion is controlled and the muscles in the ankle are challenging. The sport cord applies resistance from behind, further challenging the foot’s strength and stability. This patient is well on her way to a full recovery and reaching her goal of returning to running!
