Transcript of Achilles Ankle Strain

By Zach Haynes, Jeff Rasmussen, and Jason Bendell Achilles Ankle Strain Description Signs
and
Symptoms Management and
Getting Better Achilles Tendon Rupture is a partial or complete tear of the Achilles tendon. It comes on suddenly, sometimes with a popping sound, and can be debilitating. A full rupture is more severe, but less common than a partial rupture. A full rupture splits the Achilles tendon so that it no longer connects the calf muscle to the heel: the calf muscle can no longer cause the foot to “push off”, so normal walking is impossible. Symptoms and signs include:
-Gradual onset of pain in the Achilles area, back of the ankle, just above the heel
-This develops over a period of days
-Achilles pain at the beginning of an exercise, but fades after progression
-Pain eases when at rest
-Tenderness upon palpation Follow RICE (Rest, Ice [and sometimes heat], Compression, Elevation) first. It may be necessary to use anti-inflammatory medication. While rehabbing and after you start to feel better, use calf stretching exercises to heal. If the tear is bad enough, surgery may be needed. Some physical therapy may also be necessary to help heal the injury. To prevent further injury, it is important to wear proper footwear and to get necessary insoles and heel pads. Achilles
Fun Fact The Achilles tendon is named after Achilles: the ancient Greek hero of the Trojan War. Achilles was invulnerable except for one spot on his heel. After many adventures and victories he was killed by an arrow shot into his heel. As a result of the Achilles legend, the expression Achilles heel came to mean a fatal vulnerability, and the tendon connecting the heel to the calf became known as the Achilles tendon Follow RICE (Rest, Ice [and sometimes heat], Compression, Elevation) first.
