 Re: Cast treatment for torn achilles
SimonC    6:34pm May 1 2017

I ruptured my achilles in Jan 2016, and its a long recovery. It took me about 9 months to get back to running naturally, but that will depend on the severity of the tear.

There are both surgical and non-surgical treatment options. I did not get surgery. I was in a cast up to my knee for about 3 weeks (foot in maximum plantar flexion), and then into a walking boot with heel wedges for another 6 weeks. Then physio and rehab.
