Tendon and Ligament Repairs
A definition of Tendon and Ligament Repairs
Tendons and ligaments are soft collagenous tissues and play a major role in our bodies’ musculoskeletal system. Tendons and ligaments can adapt to changes in their structure due to exercise, injury, surgery or disease. If an injury has occurred and a repair has been made, a patients’ soft tissue (tendons and ligaments) will shorten and the joint becomes stiff, limiting the range of motion. Since soft tissue can be remodeled, a Dynasplint® System’s low-load, prolonged-duration stretch technology is extremely effective for restoring range of motion. If you have had a tendon or ligament repair and experience a loss of mobility and movement, you may want to consider a Dynasplint® System to aid in your recovery process.
