This is the classic for a complete rupture not only because the Achilles cannot allow applying force to the ball of the foot (foot pointing down position) for a walking motion, but also because of the excruciating pain that it causes trying to do so. Most of time with a partial rupture, patients will have only modest discomfort.....and can continue to walk......many times quite normally.
So, he's done if it were in fact a complete rupture. At least for the 2013 season. What's the prognosis if the tear is on the completely other side of the spectrum. We know the worst case scenario, what are the best cases & what can we look for from here, to help us figure out the true extent of the injury?
