Recovery exercises for torn Achilles Tendon

The most important thing you can do in the first weeks of waiting for recovery and healing, while in a cast, is to keep the rest of your body as fit as possible.

Five weeks into Achilles Tendon reconstruction, keep the injured side fit, from the ankle up. Make sure you don't stress the Achilles repair. Here is one exercise for quad muscles, using a stretch cord attached to a fixed point and your ankle.
Starting position, foot behind body.

Extend your leg,  with your knee, until leg is straight, then extend leg forward.
