Have I Got An Achilles Tendonitis Injury
I have a torn peroneal brevis tendon. I was in physical therapy when this injury occurred recovering from ankle surgery. What could've went wrong?
Possible; not likely: Very generic question. Liver transplant is for liver failure. It would depend on the cause and severity of the "bad liver." a liver transplant is done for a very small number of patients with liver injury/disease. The common reasons are cirrhosis or scarring of the liver from infections, alcoholism, and inflammatory diseases. ...Read more
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 moreSee 4 more doctor answers

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ouch: First line of treatment is eccentric stretching of the achilles, anti-inflammatories, and modification of the heal counter of the shoe. If conservative treatment fails, then surgery is an option to remove the spur. ...Read more
