How is Achilles paratenonitis distinguished from Achilles tendonitis?

How is Achilles paratenonitis distinguished from Achilles tendonitis?

Irritat'n of cover'g: Initially, irritation of the outer covering of the tendon called the paratendon causes a paratendonitis. The word paratendonitis simply indicates that there is inflammation around the tendon. Inflammation of the tendocalcaneal bursa may also be present with the paratendonitis.Either of these conditions may be due to repeated overuse, or ill-fitting shoes that rub on the tendon. ...Read more

What is Achilles tendinitis?

Tendon Inflammation: Irritation, swelling, inflammation of the achilles tendon. Can be caused by strain injury, direct contusion injury, degeneration from age, frictional direct irritation from ill-fitting shoewear. Identify the cause and eliminate it. Analyze shoewear carefully. Therapy is best treatment. Nsaids medicines are helpful, like ibuprofen, naproxen, etc. Usually spontaneously resolves with treatment. ...Read more

What is posterior tibialis tendonitis?

What is posterior tibialis tendonitis?

Treatment options: My suggestions to patients w/ tendonitis consist of rice, anti-inflammatories (oral/ topical), strengthening/ stretching. I also may suggest massage or bracing. If the above list does not help then you may want to consider discussing injections (cortisone or prp), oral/ topical prescriptions, or even orthotics with your physician. ...Read more

Is there any relationship between anterior tibial tendon rupture and plantar fasciitis ?

Is there any relationship between
anterior tibial tendon rupture and plantar fasciitis ?

Yes: The anterior tibial tendon is a major tendon from the leg that supports the midfoot or arch area. If this tendon looses function the foot can flatten and this will increase tension or stress on the plantar fascia or increase the likelihood of plantar fasciitis. In addition to addressing the tendon rupture, foot orthotics can help improve the biomechanics of the foot. ...Read more

MRI of ankle shows tenosynovitis of flexor longus tendon. Can that contribute to tarsal tunnel?

MRI of ankle shows tenosynovitis of flexor longus tendon. Can that contribute to tarsal tunnel?

Tenosynovitis: Tenosynovitis means inflammation of the internal lining/membrane of a tendon. The Flexor Hallucis Longus or Flexor Digitorum longus tendons run along the medial ankle to the bottom of the foot to each respective toe. The FHL and FDL tendons, along with the Posterior Tibial Tendon and a Neurovascular bundle run in the tarsal canal, so, yes, inflammation of any of these tendons can affect Tarsal T ...Read more

How does an anterior ankle sprain cause post tibial tendinitis?

How does an anterior ankle sprain cause post tibial tendinitis?

PTT kinesiology:: Posterior tibial tendinitis could result from an anterior ankle injury when there is excessive demand placed on the tibialis posterior muscle due to anterior ankle laxity. When one part of a joint becomes weak another part becomes overworked to compensate. This is one reason that ankle injuries need thorough evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment by a qualified doctor. ...Read more

Is there scar tissue associated with Achilles tendonitis?

Is there scar tissue associated with Achilles tendonitis?

Possibly yes: Signs of inflammation such as swelling, warmth, and pain occur in a person with achilles' tendonitis. Damaged tendons can become calcified (get deposits of calcium), thicker than normal, less elastic (not as stretchable), and fibrotic (form scar tissue fibers). Tendon rupture occurs when a sudden shear stress force is applied to an already inflamed or damaged tendon. ...Read more

Knee injury seems related to patellar tendon rupture. Xray?

Knee injury seems related to patellar tendon rupture. Xray?

Physical exam: An xray will not directly show a patellar tendon rupture, however, typically your knee cap will be further up your leg than normal. The xray will also show if a piece of bone was pulled off of the patella or tibia. The diagnosis is made clinically - you cannot raise your leg straight up while keeping your knee straight. You may also feel a defect in the tendon. ...Read more

Lateral epicondylitis, tendinopathy with multiple tendon ruptures along extensor tendon. Treatment options?

That is a very com--: Plex problem that you have. Is it in the same arm or elbow area? Is this from an injury? Without being seen ; examined/investigated, its difficult to address all your issues in a meaningful way. You need to see an orthopod or a elbow/shoulder surgeon to get the best advice, as otherwise you'll get a pot pouri of suggestions, which may or may not help. Good luck. ...Read more

Calf tightness w/ swelling Achilles (and paratendon) + distended unilateral tributary over achilles. Compartment syndrome?  Venous? No known injury.

DVT: Could be many things, but you need to have an ultrasound of your leg to rule out deep vein thrombosis. These can break off and go to the lungs and be life threatening. ...Read more

What causes an Achilles tendon rupture?

What causes  an Achilles tendon rupture?

Direct trauma: Achilles tendon injuries are very catastrophic. Usually occurs when the foot is in a fixed plantargrade position and the tibia (shinbone) externally rotates rapidly, and the foot does not release from its flexed state. Injuries for achilles tendon ruptures also take the longest to resolve, which can be from 8-20 weeks, depending on the amount and time of damage to the tendon. ...Read more
