Have you been involved with some sort of sports injury that has caused you to have increased pain in your Achilles tendon? If you are experiencing a whole lot of pain and discomfort along with a difficulty walking, running or climbing stairs, then the chances are really good that you have been through a tear or rupture. These types of injuries will usually take place during exercise or some sort of sports activity. Our professional team at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic will be able to work with you to not only diagnose your condition but then discuss your options when it comes to Achilles tendon surgery in Lake Stevens.
The function of your Achilles tendon is to help you as you walk by raising your heel. This is a tendon that can also help you if you are trying to push up your toes so that you can lift the rear of your heel. Someone who has been injured will usually have a difficult time pointing their toes, standing up on their toes, walking up stairs and more. Walking can end up being difficult, with some patients having to drag their foot. Some patients claim that it feels as though they have either been shot or kicked in the area.
If your tendon does not seem to be repairing itself properly or the injury is severe from the beginning, it is going to be important that you get looked at by our professional team at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic to see if surgery is your best option.
