Achilles tendon ruptures fixed with PRP and casting

Not all achilles ruptures require surgery.    
Some patients do well with casting and Platelet Rich Plasma injections.  See the difference in this video.
One important fact about this process is that it works best when we get the patient early in the rupture, when the tendon has not retracted up the leg.
