I'm not sure I agree with Achilles diagnosis. He can walk

Customer Question

I'm not sure I agree with Achilles diagnosis. He can walk just fine. Other websites I have looked at suggest he might have drop foot and it should resolve in 48-72 hours. Again he has absolutely no pain. What I'm reading on Achilles ruptures is pain along back of ankle and heel and inability to stretch ankle. He can stretch just fine he can't flex
