Achilles tendon treatment

The best-possible therapy for your achilles tendon

Whether rupture, inflammation or calcification, Achilles tendon injuries and disorders are often painful and long-lasting. Thanks to our precise diagnostics, we offer you the best possible treatment at Schoen Clinic. Depending on the type and severity of your symptoms, a full range of options are available. We can provide conservative management to treat an Achilles rupture without the need for an operation, to Achilles tendon surgery or reconstruction of a deficient Achilles tendon. We will ensure you get the right treatment for you.

Conservative therapy without surgery

Our multidisciplinary teams can help manage your tendon pain. In conjunction with physiotherapists and experts in sports and exercise medicine we can manage your Achilles pain with rehabilitation, orthotics, shockwave therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or high-volume injections.

If your symptoms persist, our specialists can manage them with surgery to remove the painful tissue, or any prominent bone spurs through Achilles tendon surgery or Haglund decompression. Occasionally, inflammation occurs between the Achilles and another smaller tendon called the plantaris, which can be treated surgically with good results.
