Achilles rehab, with Bosu ball.

One of my go to training techniques is the Bosu ball. This should be started no earlier than 8 or 9 weeks after surgery, as the tendon has to be well formed before you can introduce this kind of stress, on the repair.

I do gas peddle toe pushing and ankle rolls on the ball. I also try to balance with the aid of crutches. After a few weeks you can support your body weight on the ball.
You can see a calf muscle starting to develop.
