Achilles Tendon Repair

Don’t Let Pain Slow You Down

The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in your body. It connects the muscles in the back of your lower leg to your heel bone (the calcaneus), and it must withstand large forces during sporting exercises and pivoting.

Repetitive strain and degeneration can lead to tendinosis, or tiny tears in or around the tendon. Pain, swelling and stiffness related to tendinosis gradually intensify until treated. On the other hand, if a patient experiences a sharp, debilitating pain that’s accompanied by a popping sound in the back of the calf or heel, it may be caused by a partially torn or ruptured tendon.
