San Francisco 49ers’ Michael Crabtree Gets Stitches Out After Achilles Surgery
Michael Crabtree, wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers, suffered an Achilles tendon tear while participating in a team activity on May 21st. Crabtree went in for Achilles tendon surgery on the 22nd and now, he has had the stitches from surgery taken out.
Crabtree tweeted “On my way to get my stitches out…” on June 3rd.
He still has quite a bit of healing and rehabilitation ahead of him, though. The patient usually has to wear a walking boot for at least six to twelve weeks after the procedure.
When the boot is first put on, it will be positioned in such a way as to keep the foot pointed downward while the tendon heals. The boot will be slowly adjusted as time progresses to a more normal position.
Some exercises may be prescribed by the patient’s physical therapist to help them shorten the time needed for rehabilitation.
