Bruising Up The Achilles Tendon After Sprain
Swelling in left ankle near achilles tendon. No pain or discoloration. Started after I did jumping jacks. Could it be sprained/strained?
Probably not: Sprains and strains are invariably accompanied by pain. Painless swelling can have many causes . If it is exercise induced it could be a nearby joint capsule, tendon sheath enlarging. Some people also have some small defects in the fascia (tissue that forms compartments in the leg) and muscle can push through these areas during exercise. Bottom line, if it is not painful I would not worry. Dr. R ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had a sprained Achilles' tendon 6 years ago in high school and it sometimes flares up and swells making it uncomfortable to walk what can I do?
Achilles tendonitis: RICE, rest ice compression elevation, but with it being 6 years ago likely a chronic injury, will be difficult to get better. Try some Physical therapy for 6 to 8 weeks with the RICE and if not better get MRI may have a partial tear. Go to ER if pain or acute weakness gets suddenly worse. ...Read more
I sprained my ankle 2 mos. ago and there is still slight pain a little swelling in the Achilles Tendon. Any guesses how much longer it'll take to heal?
Not healed...: As ankle sprains can come in varying degrees of severity, from very mild to very extreme, it is hard to tell just how long it will take you ankle to totally heel. More concerning, is that you are having some issues with your Achilles tendon. Your tendon may be showing signs of an early tendinitis, due to the change in tendon function. This change could be secondary to the unresolved ankle injury. ...Read more
A nurse said I have badly pulled/sprained my Achilles tendon. It is really painful to walk on, she hasn't given me any crutches? Help?

After a high ankle sprain 6 weeks ago, I am still experiencing discomfort at my achilles' tendon and heel when i plantar flex my foot. Why is this?
If I strained/sprained my Achilles tendons 10 years ago and they still get achey sometimes, is there anything I can do about that? Cause for concern?
Eccentric strength: You likely have some degeneration of your achilles which led to the "sprain" in the first place and now causes achy pain. Your sports med provider can prescribe a series of specific eccentric resistance exercises that have been shown in many studies to be the best non-surgical treatment for achilles tendinopathy. You are at slight higher risk for a complete tear, but i wouldn't be too concerned. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
