Recovery from an Achilles tendon rupture will depend a bit, naturally, on the patient and severity of the injury. When casting is used to immobilize the affected tendon, there will be several weeks of exercises used to regain mobility and strengthen the tissue. Gait training exercises may be performed for two to three months following initial treatment.
Return to normal activities often happens around four to six months after treatment. This can vary based on desired activity levels and a patient’s adherence to post-operative instructions.
