Achilles Tendon Injury

Recommended Posts


Today, I had to understudy for Clara instead of doing my usual parts (snow, waltz, and Chinese) When I was done dancing, I noticed that my left achilles tendon hurt... really bad. What should I do? I still have 10 performances left!

The best idea would be to see a medical professional. You may begin ice immediately. It will not hurt. Put an ice pack on your foot for 15-20 minutes, take it off, repeat the process, wait 15 minutes then you can walk. Doing this 3 times a day is a good idea. Do not do this 1/2 an hour before you dance.


I repeat, see a medical professional ASAP.
