Ruptured Achilles Tendon

This is a very debilitating injury that stops the athlete in their tracks as the Achilles tendon at the back of the ankle snaps and prevents any further activity. Fortunately it isn’t common but a number of high profile athletes have suffered from this including David Beckham and Kobe Bryant.

Typically it is an injury that has no prior warning and often affects the middle aged athlete.

The rehab period is somewhere between 6-12 months and involves a detailed, well planned program to get the athlete back to their best.
