Warning:Not for the faint-hearted specially if you are in the early stages of ATR.
I have gathered the top 10 achilles tendon rupture (ATR) caught on tape. When it
happens it does not look very dramatic, but the consequences are very sever and may take up to 1 year to return to normal activities. When the injury occurs, It feels like you have been kicked or hit in the back of the leg. That’s why most who are inflicted with the injury will look behind them as you will see in the videos, a distinct ATR pop can also be heard.
