What to say to patients 

“This exercise will improve your ability to handle higher loads and make your Achilles tendon stronger as well as decreasing its sensitivity to pain.” 

“In the beginning these movements will be painful, much like an ankle sprain, but if you keep carefully loading the tendon this will improve.” 

“This exercise involves lengthening your calf muscles while simultaneously strengthening them. It has been shown to use these muscles enough to increase their size and strength. It can also positively change the structure of your tendon which is helpful for your recovery.”
