Many muscles, bones and tendons become active during exercise. An important tendon during exercise is the Achilles tendon, which is the lower leg with the heel. This allows you to drop off the ground and you can run, walk, climb stairs, jump etc. The tendon has great powers to continue. If you suffer from an Achilles tendon rupture then there is a tear in the Achilles tendon.
Our Achilles tendon is connected to the calf muscles and the foot. The tendon ensures that we can move our foot downwards. We do this by contracting the calf muscles. During tightening, the Achilles tendon comes under tension. When the tension is too great or very unexpected, an Achilles tendon can rupture, also called Achilles tendon rupture. The Achilles tendon crack can vary from a small tear to a maximum tear of the Achilles.
An Achilles tendon rupture usually occurs when you exert a large force on the Achilles tendon from standstill, for example by suddenly sprinting. It can also happen that the muscle ruptures in a light or unnatural movement. Often the condition of the tendon was already weakened.
The recovery of an Achilles tendon rupture can be treated in different ways. If the Achilles has been completely torn off, surgery will have to be done. The tendon is attached to each other to allow the tendon to recover.
If the tendon is torn in, the tendon can recover by resting the tendon. It is important here that the tendon is relieved of its movement possibilities. This can be done by a splint or a brace. The products below can relieve and mobilize the ankle joint.
