What Is Achilles Tendon?

The Achilles Tendon is the longest and most powerful tendon in the body but can become inflamed and painful, resulting in a condition called Achilles Tendinitis. Prolonged Achilles tendinitis without treatment and diagnosis by podiatrists can result in tearing and weakening of the tendon. Typically, Our Podiatrists treats Achilles tendinitis through conservative measures such as stretching, custom orthotics, physical therapy, and X-rays which can be implemented during an office visit.

In some instances, further imaging such as an MRI may be necessary to rule out tearing or fibrosis of the Achilles Tendon. If torn, the Achilles tendon may require surgical repair to ensure the best quality of life for the patient. An evaluation by a doctor is always necessary for an accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Achilles tendon is not only the largest tendon in our body, it is also the strongest, having the ability to withstand up to 1,000 lbs of force! With every step, the Achilles acts to propel our body forward over our feet. Life in an active city such as New York inevitably results in an incredible amount of stress to this tendon even on a typical day. Achilles tendon pain, tendinitis, tears, or other injuries can significantly affect the quality of life, ability to achieve health and fitness goals, and ability to work.

Despite its power, the Achilles tendon is also prone to injury. Areas of this important Achilles tendon lack a direct blood supply causing weakness and delayed healing in those regions. Achilles tendon injuries are particularly common in tennis, basketball, and soccer and should be seen by a foot and ankle specialist immediately. Podiatrist, Our Podiatrists are specialists in Achilles injuries and offers conservative and surgical treatments.
