We may recommend medication to reduce your pain and inflammation and a physical therapy program to help you regain strength in the area. If your Achilles tendon has torn significantly or broken, we may use surgery to reattach the tissue to the bone, usually with surgical pins or staples. We will follow with a rehabilitation program involving exercises and stretches to help restore your heel and foot function.
