Whether you’re a cycling fanatic or out for an easy Sunday ride, you won’t want to miss the Bike the Bend for Literacy! Benefiting the Literacy Council of Fort Bend, the ride begins at 8 AM on Sunday, November 23. The pedaling will start from Foster High School in Richmond and you can choose a 20-, 35-, or 62-mile route. Choose wisely, though. It’s important that you are conditioned prior to any weekend event. Those who decide to jump in full force often end up with foot pain or injuries such as Achilles tendon ruptures, and that will keep you from pedaling at all!

Flat Feet Behind2

Your Achilles tendon connects your calf muscle to your heel bone and, although it can withstand a great amount of stress, is still vulnerable to injury. Ruptures are partial or complete tears that occur when the tendon is stretched beyond its limits. A popping sensation, sudden pain, swelling, and difficulty walking are all signs that a rupture has occurred.

To prevent further damage, prompt treatment is essential. Typically this involves the R.I.C.E. method, which stands for rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Stop any activities and rest your foot. Ice the area to alleviate pain and wrap it snuggly to minimize swelling. Elevating it will reduce swelling as well. A cast, walking boot, or brace will help to restrict motion and allow time for the tendon to heal. In serious cases, surgery can repair damage and help to prevent recurrences. Physical therapy is also an important component to regaining strength and range of motion.

If foot pain from an Achilles rupture has made you put on the brakes, get it in gear and pay a visit to Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists right away. Make an appointment with Dr. Marco Vargas by dialing (888) 784-5335. You can also reach us online or at one of our convenient locations in Sugar Land or Houson, TX. We’ll have you back on your bike and enjoying the ride before you know it!
