DIAGNOSING AN ACHILLES TENDON RUPTURE
Achilles tendon ruptures can be debilitating, hindering your ability to walk and go about your daily activities. At your consultation with our Foot and Ankle Specialist, Dr. Chu will perform a detailed physical examination to discuss your symptoms and determine the extent of the damage to the tendon. An MRI Scan may be ordered to assess the full extent of the injury.
Depending on the results of the MRI and physical exam, your injury may be treated either surgically or nonsurgically. At G2, we strive to exhaust any and all nonsurgical methods before recommending surgical intervention, so you can rest assured that your treatment is specifically tailored to your needs, activity level and goals.
