The ultra detailed guide to improve your Achilles tendon tear
WRITTEN BY A PHYSIOTHERAPIST WHO UNDERWENT AN ACHILLES RUPTURE.
THIS IS THE BOOK YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ON HAND FROM THE FIRST MOMENT OF THE INJURY.
I suffered a left Achilles tendon rupture in 2017, and since then, as a physio and a patient, I kept learning about it.
When you tear your Achilles tendon, many fronts open up. You can’t take care of your children. You can’t work. You cannot do your favourite sport or your personal passion. And unless you are a health professional, it is difficult to be able to make the most appropriate decision and the steps to take to recover the sensations prior to the injury.
I am sharing with you all my knowledge in digital book format, so that you can refer to it whenever you need it.
You will find the index of the book at the end of this page, so that your doubt is only when you will begin to apply all the knowledge achieved.

START YOUR IMPROVEMENT NOW
If you are still not clear about the value of this book, read on.
I want you to know what you are going to download. So, I am sharing with you each of the sections found within each chapter. So that you have it clear: I want patients and leading readers (another option is to sit down to watch series, but it will not be as productive).
1. Instructions for reading this book.
Here I explain the way in which you can read the book, so that you can organise yourself according to your needs.
2. Anatomy and function. Generalities.
In this chapter I show you some of the most important muscles in your rehabilitation, what functions they perform, and why you should not forget them.
You will find the following sections:
- Involved muscles.
- Understanding the tendon on the inside
- Structure and function.
- Composition and organisation.
3. My Achilles tendon rupture.
All my history. With many extra details to what you have read so far.
- The times before the injury.
- Day 0. A bad decision?
- The day of the injury.
- Days prior to the intervention.
- Surgical intervention.
- Immediate postoperative.
- First week. Return home.

4. Nursing care.
By the time you can perform the cures, you know what you have to do.
- Personal hygiene
- Surgical wound care.
- Subcutaneous heparin. Application.
5. Food after surgery.
Here you solve many doubts in this wide field. You will also clarify a great myth in the “Bad News” section.
- Bad news.
- I inform myself, therefore I am.
- What does science say?
- Food measures you can take.
- Changes in lifestyle.
6. Rehabilitation and reinforcement of the Achilles tendon.
This has undoubtedly been my most precious treasure in the book, or the one that has taken me the longest to develop, given the wide variety of options for rehabilitation, exercise, load progression, etc.
In addition, I have created and improved my own organizational system based on adaptable fortnights, so that you understand that it is not a strict system, since it depends on each clinical case, on each person.
That must always be taken into account.
Here are the sections of this chapter:
Phases and exercises.
Dosage of the exercises.
F0. From injury to surgery.
F1. First fortnight.
F2. Second fortnight.
F3. Third fortnight.
F4. Fourth fortnight.
F5. Fifth fortnight.
F6. Sixth fortnight.
F7. Seventh fortnight.
F8. Eighth fortnight.
Day 120 onwards. And now that?
7. Resolution of consequences and frequent conflicts.
Many problems that arise are raised in this chapter (pain, swelling, weakness, muscle volume, tenderness), in addition to offering options to solve them.
8. Urgent responses.
In this chapter, I give response to the most urgent questions that you may have along your recovery. This answers will let you move quickly in case some problems appear.
In this chapter you will have some tables of quick access to foods that you can take into account.
In addition, once you have read and understood the exercises for each fortnight, you will be able to directly access the tables of these exercises that are described in chapter 6. You will also have a table, which you can print, to plan those exercises according to where you are.
- Annex 1. Food Tables.
- Annex 2. Exercise self-programming table.
- Annex 3. Exercise tables from F1 to F8.
This mini dictionary will help you understand some more technical terms that can confuse you. Take a look at it from time to time to affirm concepts during the reading.
You always have to be grateful. Brief section for my “essentials”.
BY THIS POINT YOU WILL ALREADY BE STARTING TO HAVE A FIRMER IDEA OF WHAT YOU WILL FIND IN THE BOOK:

I MUST CONFESS…
It took me more than nine months to write this book, and I assure you that the result is better, MUCH BETTER, than what I did for myself when I recovered from my Achilles rupture, even though I was very satisfied at the time.
But the perspective, the time to think, makes things easier for you.
That’s what I want for you.
That you can carry it out from a meditated vision and with knowledge of the facts.
For less than the cost of forty-five minutes of manual therapy in my practice, you get more than four months of support in your recovery.
Not bad, right?
And you will have it immediately, because it is in digital format.
By making a single click after the purchase confirmation.
So that you can start to change things right now.
IMPROVE YOUR ACHILLES TENDON RUPTURE
For obvious reasons, returns are not accepted and money will not be refunded once the purchase is made.
You will see that this is not a problem when you read it.
How long does it take to access the book?
Immediately. Once the payment is made, you can download it on the same page.
Do you have a money back guarantee?
No, there is no refund. Think that a digital book cannot be “returned”.
Do you sell it in paper format?
It will be available in Amazon soon, but in a much more expensive price.
Do you do Black Friday/Cyber Monday/etc discounts?
NO. Those discounts apply to products that are worth less than what they are sold to you for the rest of the year.
It’s more. The price of the book is likely to increase in future editions.
Do you sell it on Amazon to read it on Kindle?
Yes, but the price may not be the same.
Now, it’s time to be the protagonist.
IT´S YOUR TIME.
A KIND PHYSIO HUG.
