Achilles Ruptur

Achilles rupture means that you have tiny tears in your Achilles tendon, which connects your calf muscle to your heel. This problem causes pain and makes it hard to move your foot and ankle.

CAUSES

An Achilles tendon injury might be caused by:

  • Overuse
  • Stepping up your level of physical activity too quickly
  • Not stretching enough before exercise
  • Wearing high heels, which increases the stress on the tendon
  • Problems with the feet. An Achilles tendon injury can result from flat feet, also known as fallen arches or overpronation. In this condition, the impact of a step causes the arch of your foot to collapse, stretching the muscles and tendons.
  • Muscles or tendons in the leg that are too tight

Our Approach

As debilitating as they can be, the good news is that minor to moderate Achilles rupture injuries should heal on their own. A walking boot or wedge can help take pressure off the rupture until it heals. If you experience a re-rupture, surgery may be required.
