Achilles Ruptures

Achilles tendon ruptures are common injuries in football and rugby. They are usually non-contact injuries and the result of a lack of flexibility due to inadequate conditioning and over-stretching of the tendon. Both nonoperative treatment and surgical repair are effective, based on the severity of the tear. It’s important to see an orthopedic surgeon if you suspect you’ve sustained this type of injury.
