Achilles Tendon Rupture Treatment
Serving Palm Beach, Broward, & Miami-Dade
The Achilles tendon, like any tendon, connects muscle to bone. It this
case, it serves the important purpose of connecting the calf muscle to
the back of the foot, allowing the leg to lift the heel. Tendon ruptures
are caused by overstretching or stressing the tendon, sometimes through
sudden acceleration or traumatic impact.
For this condition, active individuals and athletes have historically had
success through surgery, as reported by the American Orthopaedic Foot
and Ankle Society. Achilles tendons can be repaired through multiple surgical
options. Surgery will either be open or closed—a skilled orthopaedist
can help you choose the best option that will allow you to heal quickly
and recover well.
