In brief: Proably therapy
After removal of the cast, the patient will likely require physical therapy to help regain the lost motion from the immobilization.
Also it is just as important to strengthen the immobilized area and also work on flexibility to prevent further injuries and possible complete achilles tendon injuries in the future.
