In brief: Feels good
But, i don't see how it will help the tendon heal.
Ideally, you would want to make sure both of the torn ends are placed back together if possible. There are other repair methods in case the tendon has retracted but this is something you need to see a podiatrist or foot and ankle orthopedist.

In brief: Yes
Yes. After surgical repair of the tendon, it can expedite recovery and reduce pain.
