Achilles Tendon Tear Treatment

Ankle Pain BaltimoreThe Achilles tendon is located on the back of the lower leg and connects the calf muscle to the heel bone. This piece of tissue allows you to lift up onto your toes and push off the ground when walking or running. Conditions affecting the Achilles tendon are incredibly common and may be referred to as tendinitis, tendinosis, or tendinopathy, although in many cases all three of these conditions will refer to the same ailment: micro-tears, a larger tear, or rupture of the tendon.

If you’re experiencing pain or reduced mobility as a result of an Achilles tendon tear or inflammation, our extensively trained orthopaedic surgeon specializing in foot and ankle concerns, can determine the origin of your discomfort and develop a personalized treatment plan that will maximize the results of your recovery. Therapy may include stretches, strength training, and other exercises as well as immobilization. In the event more advanced techniques will be necessary, he is experienced in minimally invasive surgical procedures that can help you regain mobility and return to normal activity as soon as possible.

For more information about available treatment for Achilles tendon tears or to schedule a consultation, please contact us today.
