What is an Achilles Tear?

An Achilles tear is a common sports injury that affects the tendon connecting the calf muscle to the heel bone. When this tendon becomes overstretched or ruptured due to sudden, forceful exertion, it typically results in swelling and pain near the back of the lower leg. Typically an Achilles tear requires surgery to lengthen and repair the damaged connective tissue, although rest, physiotherapy and specialized rehabilitation exercises have proven successful in treating some cases of milder tears.

What are the symptoms of an Achilles Tear?

Common symptoms of an achilles tear are sudden and sharp pain in the back of the lower calf, as well as swelling and stiffness near the heel. People who experience an achilles tear also may have difficulty bearing their full body weight on the affected foot and say they can feel a hole or gap in their Achilles tendon area. If someone suspects they have suffered an achilles tear, it is important for them to seek medical attention right away for proper diagnosis and treatment options.
