What causes an Achilles tendon rupture?

Many things factor into an Achilles tendon rupture. The tear generally occurs after a sudden strain or impact, like jumping, sprinting, or other intense movements. It’s more likely to happen after the connector has been weakened by previous injuries, too. Bad shoes, overuse, and poor conditioning, especially if you increase the intensity or frequency of your activities, stresses the tendon and injures it. Once it’s weakened, it isn’t as able to withstand hard landings and sudden pulls.

That’s why it’s important to take care of an Achilles tendon injury when it happens, whether or not it seems minor initially. Don’t wear worn out or unsupportive shoes, especially when you are active. If you experience swelling, tenderness, stiffness, and pain in the back of your heel when exercising, have the discomfort examined right away. It’s much quicker and easier to recovery from a minor condition than it is to deal with repairing a ruptured tendon.
