Now is the time to try and add some recoil and spring back to your Achilles. By doing the below exercise you are putting pressure through your Achilles. This is a good thing but should only be done after graduating the steps of your rehab. Start small and increase the load. Usually around the 6 week mark of a tailored program.
Things you need to know!
1) Imaging does not equal pain. If you have been told you have severe pathology or tears this DOES NOT necessarily mean you will not get better or have poorer outcomes.
2) There should be progressive increase in load to enable restoration of goal function whilst respecting the healing process.
