60 patients diagnosed with acute Achilles tendon rupture and conservatively treated through early mobilization and were randomized to undergo either early weightbearing or non-weightbearing protocols. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of a weightbearing protocol on the recovery of ankle biomechanics when compared to a non-weightbearing protocol. Passive tension in the plantar fl...
