I received a pair of crutches from the urgent care office for a strained ankle. While walking ( crunching ) the crutch tips failed due to a missing washer.
My crutched collapsed and I now have a torn Achilles' tendon. I called to complain and was only offered properly manufactured crutch tips. The second crutch failed the same way. The first crutch failed less than 1 day after I received, the second failed less than 1 week of use.
I read the injury can take a year to never to completely heal.
I hope I can still hike with my kids. I'm only 25 and worried I will walk with a limp forever
