Post Surgical Interventions
ACHILLES TENDON REPAIR
Numerous types of suture of the Achilles tendon can be performed. these are performed thanks to techniques with only very small incisions, avoiding problems related to difficulties of long incisions and, at the same time, reducing the times of recovery.
The intervention is usually followed by the immobilisation of the foot with a brace for 2 or 3 weeks and with a brace in a neutral flexion for 4 weeks, allowing a load only after the fourth week after surgery. The rehabilitation therapies generally start the fourth or fifth week from surgery and, at the beginning, they are performed alternating pool and gym.
