Partial gastroc tear and Achilles tendon inflammation

Question:

One of my clients got a partial tear in his gastroc, and his Achilles tendon is inflamed. This happened because he did legs on Thursday, and the next day, he went to a Muay Thai class AND played basketball.

Also, I’m not 100% sure if the doctor was talking about the patella tendon or the Achilles tendon. He was told, “the ‘tendon’ is inflamed” 

What exercises or other things should he do?


Answer:

@painfreeathletics Short-term: he should do less. You know the ATG system well now. Apply in order, gradually. ✅

Long-term: more ability is needed to put the body through extreme demands without injury. I do it every Sunday. But without extreme ability I wouldn’t be safe for those extreme demands.
