Achilles Tendon Surgery
The Achilles tendon is prone to injury and pain due to the enormous demand the body places on it during physical activity and certain anatomical factors that leave it less able to repair itself after injury. Most cases of Achilles pain can be treated through physical therapy and orthotics, but when the tendon becomes torn, ruptured, or has developed significant scar tissue, then Achilles Tendon Surgery becomes an option to discuss with your doctor.

What Is the Achilles Tendon?
Tendons are rope-like structures that connect your muscles to your bones. When your muscle contracts, it pulls on the tendon, which in turn moves the joint. Your Achilles tendon is the strongest and largest tendon in your body, allowing your body to perform incredible things like sprinting and jumping. The force needed to push your foot down when you walk or run is generated by your Achilles tendon.
This tendon is very strong and very taut. If you overstretch the tendon, it can tear or even completely rupture. Most often, this injury happens during recreational sports activities. If the tendon is torn or ruptured, Achilles tendon rupture surgery may be recommended depending on your activity level and other factors. Injuries require a prompt visit to a podiatrist who will recommend an appropriate Achilles tendinitis treatment.
