achilles tendon partial rupture

The doctor told me it was quite serious and to 'baby' it and use ice, then he said a tensor bandage is a good idea. He gave me a referral to a physiotherapy clinic - which I can not get into for a month. Should I be doing something more than hobbling about for the next month? I would like to eventually have full use to play sports again.

Stabilizing ankle brace increases ankle stability. Perfect for playing basketball, volleyball or everyday activities.
