There are many causes of achilles tendon ruptures

Some potential causes of an achilles tendon rupture include overuse and repetitive strain on the tendon, with activities such as running and jumping particularly high risk for damaging it. In some cases chiropractic care, physiotherapy and massage therapy can help reduce the chances of an achilles tendon rupture occurring. A chiropractor may be able to identify areas that are prone to injury and provide tips on how to prevent problems from developing. Physiotherapy is also important in strengthening and stretching the muscle, while massage therapy can help lessen tension in tight muscles associated with an achilles tendon rupture.

An Achilles tendon rupture is a common, but serious injury that can occur when the large tendon in the back of your leg that connects your calf muscle to your heel bone becomes overstressed. This injury most often happens during vigorous physical activities such as running, jumping and playing sports. 

Symptoms of an Achilles tendon rupture can include sudden pain at the back of the ankle/calf that may range from mild to severe, swelling near the area of the rupture, difficulty bending your foot or pointing it downwards and difficulty standing on tiptoe. Prompt medical attention must be sought after this type of injury occurs to limit potential longterm damage. 

Treatments for an Achilles tendon rupture vary depending on the severity and location of the tear. Generally, conservative treatments are recommended first, such as chiropractic care to reduce pain and swelling, physiotherapy to strengthen the area, and massage therapy to improve circulation. In some cases, when other treatments do not work or the tear is severe, surgery may be required. Surgery involves either stitching the two ends of the ruptured tendon back together or replacing it with a graft if it cannot be repaired. After treatment is completed, a rehabilitation period of several weeks should be completed regardless of treatment method in order to properly heal and restore range of motion in that area.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
