Achilles Tendon Injuries

Need a foot doctor in San Antonio or Kerrville?

The Achilles tendon is a commonly injured part of the body for athletes and people who live active lifestyles. Even still, the Achilles tendon can also be a problem for women who wear high heels on a regular basis or for people with preexisting foot problems like flat feet.

Similar to ankle sprains, Achilles tendon injuries require medical treatment relative to their severity.

If a doctor determines that the tendon is not completely torn, treatment can be as simple as:

  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Elevation
  • Strength & Flexibility Exercises
  • Taking Anti-Inflammatory Painkillers

However, if the tendon is completely torn, swift corrective action is by far the best and most successful form of treatment and can help you resume normal activities as soon as possible. For your Achilles tendon injury, choose the San Antonio foot doctor at Hill Country Foot Surgeons.
