Unfortunately, relief for Achilles tendon ruptures does not happen overnight. Recovery times vary depending on if a surgical or non-surgical treatment approach is prescribed. "Treatment processes are dependent upon a patient's overall health, activity level, and ability to follow a functional rehabilitation protocol," said Jeffrey E. McAlister, DPM, FACFAS, a fellowship-trained Arizona foot and ankle surgeon and Fellow member of ACFAS.

According to Dr. McAlister, typically, unhealthy and less-active patients may choose a non-operative approach, since they are not trying to return to active sports. But, we should keep in mind that the re-rupture rate is roughly 10 percent higher with non-operative treatment. "A non-operative approach works well in a patient who does not have the expectation of aggressive sports and activities. This usually involves a lengthy functional rehabilitation process," said Dr. McAlister.
