Achilles rupture?: Sounds like you may have ruptured your Achilles' tendon . Get examined by an Orthopedist ASAP . At your age if it's ruptured it will need primary repair. Needs splinting, ice elevation immediately . If u can't get in to see anORS have the ER doc get an MRI. Most times a palpable gap can be palpated in the tendon. A + Thompson test is typical.( lack of plantar flexion w/ comp.of calf) . Good Luck! ...Read more

I was born with my left femur 15mm shorter. As a result my achilles' tendon has tightened so much that my heel now sits 2in off ground. Please advise?

The achilles/gastroc complex can be strethced, lengthened, the femur can be lengthened. I would recommend a consult with an orthopedist to explore all your options. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
