The injury, which typically requires a few months of downtime for a full recovery, has become a common malady among NFL athletes. According to Dr. Lowell Weil Jr., President of Weil Foot & Ankle Institute, football players are prone to this type of injury due to the stop and go motion of the game. “Attempting to quickly change directions or stopping abruptly on the toes can exert too much force on the Achilles tendon and cause it to tear or rupture,” notes Dr. Weil Jr.

Dr. Weil Jr. explains that the recovery timeline for this type of injury typically includes surgery and rigorous physical therapy. “There is a minimally invasive technique we use that allows for a faster and stronger recovery,” adds Dr. Weil Jr. “Achilles tendon tears do not heal well on their own since they tend to have a limited blood supply. It is important for athletes experiencing tendinitis to receive treatment so they do not become susceptible to a more serious injury.”
