Achilles Tendon Injuries

in Missouri & Illinois

Achilles Tendon Injuries

The Achilles Tendon is a thick band of tissue connecting your calf muscles to your heel. This is important for running, jumping, and walking. Inflammation, swelling, and pain of the Achilles tendon is common; this is referred to as Achilles Tendinitis. If left untreated this condition will continue to worsen. This may be the result of overuse, and may cause pain down the back of your leg into your heel. Another common condition of the Achilles tendon is rupture. This may be associated with a ‘Pop’ and severe pain.


Treating an Achilles injury depends upon the severity. Mild achilles tendinitis may be treated with ice, rest, and stretching, but more severe injuries to Achilles tendons may require surgery. Home exercises, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medicines, custom orthotics, shoe inserts, casts, splints, walking boots, and proper shoes may be implemented, as well.
