Injuries to your Achilles tendon can involve a partial or complete tear, or rupture, which can make walking or playing sports difficult or impossible.


Our orthopedists and sports medicine specialists may prescribe medication to reduce your pain and inflammation. Physical therapy using focused exercises may help you regain strength in your heel. In other cases, surgery to repair or reattach your tendon to the bone may be the best option.
