Achilles tendon injuries
When you climb stairs, your Achilles tendon can easily be subject to pulling forces of up to 500 kilograms. The Achilles tendon is actually the strongest tendon in the whole body, but high stresses frequently cause issues.
At Schoen Clinic, we identify the exact regions of your Achilles tendon that are affected during therapy. We treat an issue at the insertion of the tendon into the heel bone differently to when the tendon itself is affected or partially ruptured. In each case, you’ll receive the best possible care for your symptoms from our specialists.
