Treatment Options for Achilles Tendon Tear and Achilles Tendonitis
An Achilles tendon tear is considered a much more severe injury than Achilles tendonitis and therefore the treatment options can vary based on the diagnosis.
Treatment Options for Achilles Tendon Tears
At OrthoNeuro, the treatment options for Achilles tendon tears are based on the severity of the damage to the tendon.
In the instance of a partial tendon tear, options include:
- Rest and Ice
- Activity Modification
- Physical Therapy
If the Achilles tendon is torn more than 50% of the way through the tendon or is completely torn (known as an Achilles rupture), surgery may be recommended to repair the tendon.
At OrthoNeuro, Achilles tendon repair is performed as an outpatient procedure so that you are able to return home the same day as your procedure.
