Achilles Tendon Injuries Can be Prevented: MD Podiatrist

Daniel D. Michaels with the Reconstructive Foot & Ankle Institute, LLC, says that “over my last 10 years in practice, 90% of the clients that I have seen have been suffering from underlying issues in their calf muscles , these have often been uncovered due to the surging of other more painful problems, such as Achilles issues.”

 

Michaels recommends preventative measures to avoid requiring long-term recovery, or even surgery. He explains, “a weak or tight calf would always restrict movement in the ankles and add stress to the Achilles tendon. The resulting weakness and scarring from this restriction and stress will cause muscular tissues to become inelastic, making the Achilles prone to tearing or even rupturing.”
