How can I tell if I have an Achilles tendon injury after my motorcycle accident?

How can I tell if I have an Achilles tendon injury after my motorcycle accident?

Weak plantar flexion: When walking, the calf muscle contracts, your foot pushes down, and you are propelled forward. If your foot is forced up while the gastroc is contracting, you can tear the achilles tendon. A partial tear may be more swollen and sore than weak, while a complete tear is weak. Lie on your stomach with your knee flexed, squeeze your calf, and your foot should plantar flex if the tendon is intact. ...Read more

I've been having Achilles pain, could I have a rupture or tear?

I've been having Achilles pain, could I have a rupture or tear?

Rapture...: A complete rupture of the achilles is a serious injury and one that would force you to seek emergency care. There are less serious, although still painful, conditions that can affect the achilles. Tendinitis, insertional tendinitis, tendinosis, partial tear.....These are all painful and become worse with activity. These can all become chronic problems. Best to have it looked at. ...Read more

I have a torn distal biceps tendon had MRI and i was told it was about 1/4 torn do I need surery?

I have a torn distal biceps tendon had MRI and i was told it was about 1/4 torn do I need surery?

Maybe not: If the tendon is mostly intact and there is no gap you could try conservative care. Was this an acute injury? If so better prognosis for success without surgery. Would need 6-8 weeks of protection from sudden jerking force ( no heavy resistance). Needs to be watched and should steadily improve. If not, may need surgery. ...Read more

 I have ankle swelling and ankle pain.  i did this playing soccer

Ankle swelling: and pain is a very common injury in those who play soccer. Frequently the supporting ankle ligaments are stretched, even injured, with rapid turns and pivots while running....let alone kicking. Elevate your ankle and apply ice (a bag of frozen peas works well) for 15 minutes 3 times a day. Brace for support. Avoid playing if painful. See Doc/Sports Med if persists 5-7 days. Stay well:) ...Read more

Could I have a torn meniscus if I fell playing tennis?

Possibly: Tennis is certainly a likely method for getting a meniscus tear. Typically a twisting or squatting knee motion is more likely to cause a meniscus tear. The other way to get meniscus tears is in situations where the knee is already unstable such as after an acl tear. ...Read more
