Dealing with severe pain of your Achilles tendon will call for seeking help from a professional podiatrist. If you are in tremendous pain and you seem to have a difficult time walking without having to drag your foot, the chances are that you may be in need of Achilles tendon surgery in Mountlake Terrace. Working with our professional, experienced and friendly team at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic will help you to have all of the information and attention that you need to get on the road to recovery.
When it comes to diagnosing your Achilles tendon issue, our podiatrist will ask you some questions about what took place when the injury happened as well as what you may have had for injuries to your Achilles tendon in the past. After a full examination of the ankle and foot, including feeling for a defect in the tendon such as a tear or rupture, it will then be known whether or not you are going to need surgery.
Because we understand that surgery is not always something that our patients want to have to go through, we will do all that we can to try to treat your Achilles tendon in non-surgical ways. However, if you have a rupture, you will need to have surgery to give you relief and make it so that you can get back to life as normal.
