I want to ask .. r nTendon of my leg broke due to an accident … and after surgery my ankle cannot move upwards. Can this be recovered … or permanently please advise if it can recover

1 Answer:

Hi Biteng, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

First of all, I want to confirm in advance what tendon was severed during the accident? How severe was the tendon damage? How fast is the treatment done?

Tendons are connective tissue that connects muscles to bones. When doing a movement, the muscles will contract and shorten and the tendon will pull the bones towards the muscle shortening so that the bones will also move according to the coordination of the muscles. If during an accident the tendon ruptures irregularly, sometimes it is necessary to repair it by cutting the damaged or uneven part of the tendon so that the tendon will become shorter. Likewise, if a tendon repair is delayed, the tendon may become stiffer and shorter after repair. If there is indeed a shortening of the tendon, then the limitation of motion that you experience is likely to be permanent.


To help improve movement after tendon surgery, the surgeon will usually recommend physiotherapy. You can ask for a referral to a specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation (SpKFR) to be able to do certain therapies that can improve the space for your legs.


Meanwhile, you should not force to move your leg up so that there is no injury or tendon break again.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
