Eccentric calf raises (or ‘heel raises’) are still currently the most effective exercise to start strengthening the achilles tendon and calf for a tendonitis, tendinopathy, calf muscle tears or post-operative achilles tendon repair.

D G says:

Hi. I was poisoned by the antibiotic Levaquin which wasted my calf muscles and ankle tendons. I am 10 months out and am walking. My Achilles is still tight, but I would like to rebuild the atrophied calf muscles. When I make a muscle with my calves, about one-third of the calf is just hanging loose. What can I do to start rebuilding the calf without injuring the Achilles. I am afraid of rupture, as these antibiotics(fluoroquinolones) can cause a rupture months after taking them. Thanks.
