Lower Leg Injuries
On the whole, it normally takes approximately 10-12 weeks to completely recover from a partially torn achilles tendon. In cases of a completely torn Achilles tendon, then surgery is recommended to fix the tendon. This requires significantly more time to heal. Once through with surgery, the individual will need to least four weeks of complete rest to allow the wounds to heal.
Whether an individual is an athlete or not it is extremely important to know whether there is any damage done to the Achilles tendon. The primary presenting feature of a damaged Achilles tendon is pain and stiffness behind the heel. This pain tends to get worse when any pressure is applied on the calf or heel and gets better with rest. The pain tends to be worse in the morning and gets better as the day goes on.
The ability of an individual to walk after a Fractured Tibia totally depends upon the extent of the injury and the type of fracture sustained. For both displaced and nondisplaced fracture of the tibia the affected individual will not be able to walk or put any weight on the affected leg.
