Understanding Tendon Procedures of the Ankle

Tendon procedures of the ankle, such as Tibialis Posterior Reconstruction, Tibialis Posterior Tendinopathy Repair, Flexor Hallucis Tendinopathy Repair, Peroneal Tear Repair, and Tibialis Anterior Tear Repair, are critical for addressing various tendon injuries and conditions affecting ankle stability and function. These procedures are essential for patients experiencing pain, instability, or dysfunction in the ankle due to tendon damage or degeneration.

Our Comprehensive Rehabilitation Approach

At FAARA, we offer detailed rehabilitation programs tailored to the specific tendon procedure performed. Our approach focuses on restoring strength, flexibility, and function while ensuring a safe and effective recovery.

Post-Surgical Care and Pain Management:

  • Initial care involves managing pain and swelling post-surgery.
  • We fit protective cam walkers and prescribe appropriate gait aids to promote healing, reduce discomfort and inflammation.

Physical Therapy and Mobilisation:

  • Early-stage rehabilitation includes gentle range-of-motion exercises to prevent stiffness.
  • Gradual introduction of strengthening exercises specific to the tendon repaired.
  • Balance and proprioception training to restore ankle stability.

Customised Rehabilitation for Each Procedure:

  • Tibialis Posterior Reconstruction and Repair: Focus on restoring the function of the tibialis posterior tendon, crucial for supporting the arch and maintaining foot stability.
  • Flexor Hallucis Tendinopathy Repair: Emphasis on regaining toe flexion strength and flexibility, essential for push-off motion in walking and running.
  • Peroneal Tear Repair: Rehabilitation aimed at restoring lateral ankle stability and strength.
  • Tibialis Anterior Tear Repair: Targeted exercises to improve dorsiflexion and overall foot mechanics.

Gait Training and Functional Exercises:

  • As recovery progresses, we incorporate gait training to ensure proper walking mechanics.
  • Functional exercises tailored to return to daily activities or specific sports.

Preventive Strategies and Education:

  • Education on proper foot and ankle care, footwear recommendations, and injury prevention strategies.
