Do You Have a Ruptured Achilles Tendon?

You might be unsure if your foot pain has anything to do with your Achilles tendon. If you have an injured Achilles tendon, you might have swelling and stiffness, as well as severe pain in your lower calf where your Achilles tendon is. If you keep hearing a popping or snapping sound, this can also indicate a ruptured Achilles tendon. Finally, if you can’t easily stand on your tiptoes or move your leg, then a doctor's visit might be necessary.

What Should You Do Next?

If you have a ruptured Achilles tendon, Mark Drakos, MD, can assist with a variety of treatments. Treatments might include a cast or brace that allows your tendon to heal or surgery that mends your ruptured tendon. Both of these treatment options need physical therapy.
