In brief: Strength and ROM

Typically after an achilles repair rehab involves strengthening the muscles of the lower leg/ankle, while increase rom (range of motion) and flexibility.
It is an area that must be rehabbed carefuly, as reinjuring the tendon is possible and certainly not ideal.

In brief: Tendon repair

Initial rehab starts with getting range of motion back than progress to strengthening and balance of your leg.
Typically it takes about three months.
