Achilles tendon injuries may include a rupture, also known as a tear. Early treatment at Shriners Children's for an Achilles tendon tear works best and can help prevent more injury.
Shriners Children's provides pro-level care for injured young athletes in our sports medicine clinics. Seeing a doctor right away can stop an injury from getting worse and help avoid long-lasting damage.
Tendon ruptures are partial or complete tears of the band-like tissue that connects to muscles and bones. Shriners Children's offers a variety of treatment including imaging, splinting, surgery and rehabilitation therapy.
