If there is a partial tear, it will certainly heal, with a balance of correct immobilisation, unloading, and a very gradual but progressive return to movement, and sport specific loading. In this situation, there is a fine line between not moving the Achilles tendon too much, and putting too much load on it. This process can usually be guided by physiotherapists who specialise in this type of soft tissue injury. If the diagnosis is unsure, and you don't feel comfortable with the management or advice you have been given, then it's always recommended to get another opinion, or several, before proceeding on a fully informed treatment plan.
