Achilles Tendon Rupture, Calf Injury Cause

Share

�Achilles injury, which turns out to be a ruptured Achilles tendon.

 

 

This is a devasting injury for anyone, especially world-class athletes. Take NBA player Kevin Durant and his injury that could keep him out for some time. To be fair Durant was dealing with a calf injury on the same leg, for some weeks before this injury.

But it was his first game back in action and it led to a crushing injury!

Calf & Achilles Tendon Relationship

The calf and Achilles tendon are so interrelated that when one has an issue so does the other.

Let�s take a look.

The Gastrocnemius and Soleus muscles basically make up the calf.

 

 

  • The fascia of these muscles segue ways to form the Achilles tendon.
  • If the calf is tight, then the Achilles is going to be tight.

The relationship between calf injury and an Achilles injury.

Cycle of Injury

Going through any area of the cycles can lead to a devastating injury.

 

Symptoms

  • Pain and stiffness around the lower leg, right above the back of the heel
  • Begins as a mild ache and worsens throughout the day
  • Jumping,� running, stair climbing, and sprinting can spark intense pain
  • Tenderness or stiffness especially in the morning, but improves with movement/activity

 

The key is to intervene to stop the cycle.

A few ways:

  • Rest
  • Massage
  • Physical Therapy
  • Chiropractic
  • Custom orthotics

 

Active Release Therapy (ART)

ART is extremely�effective�for breaking up scar tissue and improving issues with soft tissues. Treatment can do a lot to improve the health of your tendon and the surrounding tissues to avoid further complications. It will also do a lot to help relieve the pain you are experiencing.

Chiropractic Adjustments/Manual Manipulations

Many times, the issues with your Achilles tendon are the result of misalignment in other parts of your body. When your joints are misaligned it tends to put extra stress on your feet and Achilles tendons. To minimize the stress on your joints, your chiropractor will adjust your spine and other joints to ensure proper alignment.

What’s Afoot

If you have low back pain�or have had it, you are not alone. Experts estimate that around�80% of people�will experience some type of back problem at some point in their lives.�The Global Burden of Disease 2010�lists low back pain as the number one cause of disability worldwide. The good news is the majority of back pain is mechanical in origin or is not organic. This means that infection, cancer, fracture, inflammatory arthritis, and other serious conditions are not the cause. In fact, you may benefit by looking to your feet, knees,�and hips as the culprits.

 

VasyliMedical Lower Limb Overuse Injuries

 

NCBI Resources:

The large, thick tendon that travels up from the base of the heel and into the calf muscle is the Achilles tendon. It connects the calf muscle and heel. It allows you to walk, run and jump. The Achilles tendon is strong and durable, but it is possible to overwork it and cause enough overuse injury.
