Achilles Rupture

The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the body and connects your calf muscles to the heel bone.  Occasionally, the tendon can become injured and its fibers can separate, causing pain and the inability to push off with the foot.  Both nonsurgical and surgical treatments are available for Achilles Rupture.  If you are concerned that your Achilles tendon may be torn, we would recommend scheduling an appointment immediately for evaluation by a specialist.
