What is Achilles Injury and Tendon Rupture?

An Achilles tendon rupture is a complete or partial tear that occurs when the tendon is stretched beyond its capacity. Forceful jumping or pivoting, or sudden accelerations of running, can overstretch the tendon and cause a tear. An injury to the tendon can also result from falling or tripping. Achilles tendinitis can weaken the tendon, making it more vulnerable to a tear (rupture) — a painful injury that usually requires surgical repair.


Common Achilles Injury and Tendon Rupture Symptoms

Below is a short list of symptoms that patients experience when they are diagnosed with an Achilles injury or tendon rupture:

  • A popping or snapping sound when the injury occurs
  • Unable to stand on the toes on the injured leg
  • Unable to bend the foot downward
  • Unable to “push off” the injured leg when walking
  • Moderate or severe pain
  • Swelling near the heel
  • The feeling of having been kicked in the calf


About Our Achilles Injury and Tendon Rupture Solutions

Whether an Achilles tendon rupture is treated surgically or non-surgically, physical therapy is an important component of the healing process. Physical therapy involves exercises that strengthen the muscles and improve range of motion in the foot and ankle. A special type of strengthening called “eccentric” strengthening, involving a slow let down of a weight after raising it, has been found to be especially helpful for persistent Achilles problems.


Orthotic devices. A shoe insert or wedge that slightly elevates your heel can relieve strain on the tendon and provide a cushion that lessens the amount of force exerted on your Achilles tendon.

Before your appointment, you may want to write a list of answers to the following questions:

  • Did the pain begin suddenly or gradually?
  • Are symptoms worse at certain times of day or after certain activities?
  • What types of shoes do you wear during exercise?
  • What medications and supplements do you take regularly?
