Re: torn tendon
I blew my achilles tendon today and Im told tendons take a LONG time to heal (a couple mths maybe). I'm guessing one tendon is much like the others as far as healing. If you rush it, you will only harm yourself more in the long run, be careful. If it flares up, stop doing what you're doing. The safest way to get better soon is via physical therapy as they'll work on relieving your pain and slowly stretch that tendon to prevent stiffness and recurrent tears. If your dr didnt order PT, ask him what kind of exercises (if any) you can do to get you moving again. Good luck with it tho... hope youre running again soon.
