Ruptured Achilles pushes MVP Durant out of NBA finals

2 months ago, NBA finals saw an NBA franchise record as the Toronto Raptors took the championship for the first time, having defeated the Golden State Warriors by only four points. The loss may have come as a shock to the Warriors, as they had defeated the Raptors in their previous match, just days earlier.

However, the Warrior’s 1-point triumph over the Raptors in Game 5 came at the cost of star player and MVP Kevin Durant. Early in the second quarter, Durant keeled over in pain, visually clasping below the back of his right calf.

Durant had suffered a painful rupture to his Achilles tendon, a flexible band of connective tissue which joins the lower calf muscle to the bone of the heel. While an Achilles tendon tear generally doesn’t end an NBA career, history shows that it can cause ongoing issues to its sufferers.

Mark Lin, Australia’s leading sports podiatrist and director of Sydney-based Footwork Podiatry, says that “over my last 10 years in practice, 90% of the clients that I have seen have been suffering from ongoing issues in their calf muscles, these have often been uncovered due to the surging of other more painful problems, such as Achilles issues.”

Having already missed the majority of the season just passed, Washington Wizards player John Wall is also expecting to miss the majority of the coming 2019-2020 season as he is still recovering from his ruptured Achilles injury, resulting in surgery in February of this year.

Another all-star player, Demarcus Cousins, suffered an Achilles tendon rupture in January of 2018 which resulted in a season-ending reparative surgery while playing for the New Orleans Pelicans before he joined Durant on the Golden State Warriors team later last year.

Achilles injuries can present in a variety of ways, such as a sharp, shooting pain in the back of your heel, or stiffness or dull ache originating in the Achilles tendon that radiates up to the calf muscle. External factors such as incorrect footwear, a sudden increase in physical activity, overtraining, or training on hard or uneven surfaces can lead to Achilles tendon injuries.

These types of injuries must be dealt with swiftly, as the delay of their treatment could lead to irreversible tissue damage and long-term rehabilitation. As with many podiatry problems, Footwork Podiatry always recommends early evaluation and intervention to its patients.

While symptoms may not be debilitating, ordinary symptoms, such as calf tightness, with time can contribute to the eventual rupturing of the Achilles tendon, which can be severely painful and present long-term repercussions.

At Footwork Podiatry, we optimise treatment of Achilles tendon injuries, focussing on the reduction of excessive loading on the Achilles tendon, and the restoration of normal tissue function.

We also specialise in a range of preventative treatment techniques for a variety of podiatry problems, including Achilles tendon injuries, that provide patients with sustainable relief of pain, promote the proper healing of muscular tissues and correct any underlying causes that we uncover.

If you are presenting with early warning signs or are concerned that you may have already suffered an Achilles tendon injury, contact Footwork Podiatry to book your assessment and get ahead of the game with preventative treatments.

NEW YORK — Cynthia Erivo and Greta Gerwig rocked sparkling chokers as the Golden Globes red carpet kicked off Sunday, with Erivo in a hand-beaded custom Thom Browne gown and Gerwig in black and cream.

Close call in majors can lead to some major recovery time

Feb 27, 2020

KAPALUA, Hawaii — J.B. Holmes played only two rounds in four months leading into the new year. He expected some rust at Kapalua, and it showed when he managed only two birdies in his opening round of 78. He can recover from that, especially in a 34-man field with no cut in the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Far more difficult was getting over his shot to win a major. For two days at Royal Portrush, Holmes played some of his best golf and shared the 36-hole lead. Even after Shane Lowry began to pull away with a 63 in the...

Arizona St, Florida St meet in Sun Bowl without top RBs

Feb 27, 2020

EL PASO, Texas — The top running backs for Arizona State and Florida State won't be around for the Sun Bowl. Sun Devils coach Herm Edwards and interim Seminoles coach Odell Haggins can live with those decisions regardless of their effect on Tuesday's game. “Don't forget that these players that are sitting out actually helped these teams get to bowl games,” Edwards said. "Some people get all sideways. ‘Why isn’t he playing?' It's the way of the world. You don't disrespect them. You don't get mad at them. “I'm hoping they'll show up for the game, stand on the sidelines....

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Feb 27, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...
