Re: Achilles Injury

The Achilles tendon is a very strong and powerful tendon. Injuries can vary from tendonitis to tendon tear and even rupture. Without an examination, I can only give very broad guidelines. First, I recommend you see a specialist, in Australia there are podiatrists as well as orthopedists. I would recommend an MRI for further information or at least a diagnostic ultrasound to determine the extent of the injury.

Treat ments depend on the extent of the injury and can range from rest to immobilization to surgery. Anti-inflammatory medications can also be helpful.
