CEU Course Description
Although the Achilles tendon is the strongest tendon in the human body it can still sustain injury. Achilles tendinopathy, Achilles tendon partial tear and Achilles tendon rupture are the most common Achilles tendon pathologies. It is important for Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants to recognize these distinct pathologies and intervene on them for patients to effectively recover. Each of these three Achilles tendon pathologies have a different set of diagnostic criteria, recovery time and rehabilitation strategy, which will be discussed in this course.
