Tendons are thick and strong tissue that connects muscles to bones. Tendons function in moving joints. Sudden or repetitive movements often cause tendons to break. For example in the case of an accident or trauma falls.
If a tendon tear occurs, either in part or in full, it should be reconnected through surgery so as not to leave any limbs that cannot be moved.
After surgery, the limbs need to do gradual exercise. So that the muscles do not shrink and the joints are not stiff. Actually it can be done independently. In children can be guided by parents. But in the case of the mother child, it should be regained control by an orthopedic specialist who performs the action, to be able to do an evaluation of the treatment that has been done. And find out the cause of the emergence of complaints like this. Besides this, also discuss physiotherapy for children. Do you think that your child's pediatrician needs to consult with a medical rehab specialist so that physiotherapy can be done?
Meanwhile, be diligent for the mother to move all parts of the joints. Children's movements slowly, gently and gradually. This is an exercise that in fact the mother must have run gradually since the operation was completed.
Thus hopefully useful.
