Having any sort of injury to your Achilles tendon can leave you out of commission for a while. Depending on the level of your injury, you could have to stay off of your feet for at least a week or even longer. For some people, recovery time can take months, especially if there is some sort of surgical procedure that is involved. When you work with us at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic, you will be able to learn all about the various Achilles tendon problems and treatment in Bellevue and get back on your feet as soon as possible.
This is not to say that you cannot be active on some level while you are waiting for your injury to heal. It is going to be important that you work closely with your podiatrist to come up with a plan for exercise and therapy that will be beneficial to your healing process. It may even be recommended that you go with an exercise such as swimming, as it is low impact and easy on your muscles, joints and tendons.
Moving forward after your injury heals, we will also be able to work with you to teach you how to make sure that you can prevent an injury to your Achilles tendon from happening in the future. For example, you need to be able to wear shoes that fit well and offer great support. Not only that, but you always need to be stretching properly before you start in on any sort of physical activity.
