Researchers found patients had increased mechanical properties of tendon healing with early tensional loading after repair surgery for Achilles tendon rupture compared to patients completely immobilized in a cast postoperatively. “Despite the fact that both groups were allowed full weightbearing on their injured leg, the group with early tensional loading showed a higher modulus of elasticity.
