Achilles tendon repair – Physiopedia
The Achilles Tendon connects the calf muscles to the calcaneus (heel bone) and is one of the important tendons in the human body. The main action of the achilles tendon is foot plantar flexion. Common pathologies include: tendinopathy, tear or rupture. Examples of mechanisms of injury for rupture includes: falling from a height, forceful plantar flexion of the ankle (as in jumping with an extended knee), or using the foot to break a fall if you stumble[1]. Clinically they present with a palpable gap on palpation, increased passive dorsiflexion, lack of heel raise and a positive Thompson Test[1]. Achilles tendon rupture is either managed conservatively with a cast or surgically with an achilles tendon repair.
