A member asked:

Heard a snapping/popping noise at the back of the heel (near the achilles tendon), felt sudden pain but it went away immediately but feels sore now. no problem moving the ankle, no swelling or redness, the area is fine to touch as well, but worried?

When you hear a snapping sound it is usually a tendon sliding over bone making a sound. Impossible to determine your extent of your injury. Good signs are no swelling or discoloration. But having pain you did some damage. Rest allowing it to heal. If this continues seek medical treatment

You may have popped a secondary tendon that functions similar to the Achilles, I would recommend compression with an ankle support and home exercises with PT for 4 weeks. If no improvement get an X-ray and MRI.
