AchillesBlog is a space that has grown over the past few months to bring together people who have injured their Achilles Tendon. You can share your injury and recovery experiences with others who are also recovering from their achilles tendon rupture (ATR).
You’ll also find valuable information about recovering from Achilles Tendon Rupture, and please feel free to contribute to our resource to help others who are on the same path to recovery.
If you think you just ruptured your Achilles tendon, (Please go see a doctor!) and please visit: Just ruptured your Achilles?

If you want to read about other people’s personal experiences with Achilles Tendon Rupture and Recovery, you’ll find blogs by people chronicling their injury and recovery here. If you are starting out on your recovery, then it’ll be very helpful for you to read about other people’s recovery experiences.
My ATR Recovery Chronology is here, and you’ll also see many more on the left sidebar under the title “RECOVERING FROM ATR”. Many of these blogs are on AchillesBlog, and some are blogs from elsewhere that we’ve come across.
If you want to share your Achilles Tendon Rupture story, you can create your own here.
