Nonoperative, Dynamic Treatment of Acute Achilles Tendon Rupture: Influence of Early Weightbearing on Biomechanical Properties of the Plantar Flexor…

Acute Achilles tendon rupture alters the biomechanical properties of the plantar flexor muscle–tendon complex that can affect functional performance and the risk of repeat injury. The purpose of the present study was to compare the biomechanical properties of the plantar flexor muscle–tendon complex in patients randomized to early weightbearing or non-weightbearing in the nonoperative treatment of Achilles tendon rupture
