Different levels. Complete rupture is a process. Mild strain isnít too bad and with proper care should be back in no time

The former can be treated with ice, NSAIDS, compression and rest for 2-4 weeks. If your muscle swells a lot you may need to wear a compression sock for awhile even after the pain goes away.
Partial or complete rupture of the Achilles can be life altering. It is generally treated with cast immobilization and/or surgery.

I didn't play squash for over a year because of that damn tear, I am back to playing now but I have to wear compression socks otherwise I can't run.

Saw my ortho yesterday and it is a grade 2 soleus tear. Not too serious but will still be out for at least two months - boot for at least 4 weeks.
Funny thing is I have no issues putting if I don't straighten my leg !
Maybe will work on my putting...
I usually stretch and am in good shape but was tired out from a virus and walking 18 the previous day. A quick game of catch with my son was the culprit.
Wake up call as I am nearing 50.
Glad it wasn't terribly serious. You can probably speed that up a bit if your Ortho sends you for some PT in a couple of weeks.
