Torn Achilles tendon

During exercise, many forces are exerted on muscles, bones and tendons. An important tendon during exercise is the Achilles tendon, which is located on the lower leg with the heel. This allows you to push yourself off the ground and you can run, walk, climb stairs, jump etc. The tendon has great forces to last. If you suffer from an Achilles tendon rupture, there is a tear in the Achilles tendon. This can be a partial (partial) crack, but it can also be completely ruptured (torn).

What is a ruptured Achilles tendon?

Our Achilles tendon is connected to the calf muscles and the foot. The tendon ensures that we can move our foot down. We do this by contracting the calf muscles. The Achilles tendon is under tension during tightening. When the tension is too great or very unexpected, an Achilles tendon can rupture, also known as Achilles tendon rupture. The Achilles tendon tear can vary from a small tear to a maximum tearing of the Achilles.

Cause Achilles tendon rupture

An Achilles tendon rupture usually occurs when you exert a great force on the Achilles tendon from a standstill, for example by suddenly sprinting (during sports). It can also happen that the muscle tears with a light or unnatural movement. Often the condition of the tendon was already weakened / weaker. Therefore, we see tearing of the Achilles tendon especially in the elderly.

Symptoms of the torn Achilles tendon

  • Calf muscle less strong
  • Painful area around the calf
  • The calf can feel warm
  • The calf may be red
  • Calf strain is painful

Recovery after Achilles tendon tear

The recovery from an Achilles tendon rupture can be treated in various ways. If the Achilles are completely torn off, surgery will be required. The tendon is stitched together to allow the tendon to recover.

If the tendon is torn, the tendon can recover by resting the tendon. It is important that the tendon is relieved of its movement possibilities. This can be done by a splint or a brace, after treatment by a doctor or physiotherapist. The products below can relieve and mobilize the ankle joint.
