Athletes and those who live active lifestyles are more prone to injuring their Achilles tendon. Treatment for this kind of injury varies, based on its severity. For Achilles tendons that aren’t completely torn, Dr. Fish will likely recommend resting, icing the affected area, compression, elevation, strength and flexibility exercises, and taking anti-inflammatory OTC medication to reduce swelling and pain.
If the Achilles tendon is completely torn, corrective surgery is required.
