Injuries and Achilles Tendon

Injuries are more prone to people who have not exercised for months or even years according to Doctor James Jennings, Family Medicine Specialist at Baptist Health Primary Care, who adds that for these reasons the injuries can be more serious.

The doctor also explains rupture of the Achilles Tendon (the tendon that joins the heel bone to the calf muscle) is one of the most common injuries and, sometimes, requires surgery, be in a boot and be out of action for probably even a few months.

Fortunately the recovery of the patient is close to 100%, the specialist affirms.
