    Hi All
    Not one reply!
    No one should let this go through to the keeper!

    The post surgical people could stand tip toe on the surgically corrected leg.

    Hey
    cannot most people irrespective of age and fitness who have a complete rupture of the Achilles stand tip toe on the affected leg?

    That is why using standing on tip toe is a useless test for Achilles Rupture in the first place....

    Time to read the literature me thinks.

    About to snow in Queenstown NZ.. a bit like USA odd weather. Supposed to last for 24 hours

    Hi
    Just saw this post.
    No, if you have a rupture of the achilles you cannot stand tip toe.

    Hi all
    It just shows how much rubbish it out there.
    only 9 papers considered out of 400+
    Even then they could not make up their minds one way or the other.
    Reader beware!
