Abstract

The increased popularity of recreational sporting activities has increased the incidence of Achilles tendon ruptures. These usually occur in sedentary males in their 30s or 40s. Although history and clinical examination are usually sufficient to diagnose acute ruptures of the Achilles tendon, long-standing ruptures may require ultrasonography and/or MRI. Conservative management should be reserved for older patients. Recent rehabilitation protocols have facilitated recovery from operatively and nonoperatively treated Achilles tendon injuries.
