Metabolism and inflammatory mediators in the peritendinous space measured by microdialysis during intermittent isometric exercise in humans. (1/488)

1. The metabolic processes that occur around the tendon during mechanical loading and exercise are undescribed in man. These processes are important for understanding the development of overuse inflammation and injury. 2. A microdialysis technique was used to determine interstitial concentrations of glycerol, glucose, lactate, prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and thromboxane B2 (TXB2) as well as to calculate tissue substrate balance in the peritendinous region of the human Achilles tendon. Recovery of 48-62 % (range) at rest and 70-77 % during exercise were obtained for glycerol, glucose and PGE2. 3. Six young healthy humans were studied at rest, during 30 min of intermittent static plantar flexion of the ankle at a workload corresponding to individual body weight, and during 60 min of recovery. Microdialysis was performed in both legs with simultaneous determination of blood flow by 133Xe washout in the same area, and blood sampling from the radial artery. 4. With exercise, the net release of lactate as well as of glycerol from the peritendinous space of the Achilles tendon increased 2-fold (P < 0.05). Furthermore a 100 % increase in interstitial concentration of PGE2 and TXB2 was found, but it was only significant for TXB2(P < 0.05). As peritendinous blood flow increased 2- to 3-fold during intermittent static contractions, this indicates also that the output of these substances from the tissue increased during exercise. 5. This study indicates that both lipid and carbohydrate metabolism as well as inflammatory activity is accelerated in the peritendinous region of the human Achilles tendon with dynamic loading.  (+info)

Sonographic incidence of tendon microtears in athletes with chronic Achilles tendinosis. (2/488)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the number and distribution of tendon microtears in asymptomatic controls and athletes with chronic Achilles tendinitis or partial thickness tears using high resolution ultrasound. METHODS: The mean number of microtears in three random tendon cross sections were recorded per tendon third in 19 asymptomatic volunteers, 16 athletes with symptomatic chronic Achilles tendinitis, and eight athletes with partial Achilles tendon rupture. RESULTS: Microtears were most numerous in the middle third section of the Achilles tendon. Some 67% of tendons in the control group had no microtears, and 28% showed a single microtear. Only 18% of the athletes with chronic Achilles tendinitis and none of the athletes with partial tendon rupture were without microtears in the middle third of their Achilles tendon. Of the tendons with chronic tendinitis, 13% had more than three microtears per section which increased to 87% in tendons exhibiting partial rupture. CONCLUSIONS: There appears to be an association between microtear formation and Achilles tendon rupture.  (+info)

Safe relief of rest pain that eases with activity in achillodynia by intrabursal or peritendinous steroid injection: the rupture rate was not increased by these steroid injections. (3/488)

A history of morning and rest pain that eases with activity was found to improve after anti-inflammatory injections around the paratenon or within the Achilles bursae. The reduction in pain morbidity was significant, and the peritendinous steroid injections did not increase the rupture rate.  (+info)

Negative interstitial pressure in the peritendinous region during exercise. (4/488)

In the present study, tissue pressure in the peritendinous area ventral to the human Achilles tendon was determined. The pressure was measured during rest and intermittent isometric calf muscle exercise at three torques (56, 112, and 168 Nm) 20, 40 and 50 mm proximal to the insertion of the tendon in 11 healthy, young individuals. In all experiments a linear significant decrease in pressure was obtained with increasing torque [e.g., at 40 mm: -0.4 +/- 0.3 mmHg (rest) to -135 +/- 12 mmHg (168 Nm)]. No significant differences were obtained among the three areas measured. On the basis of these observations, microdialysis was performed in the peritendinous region with a colloid osmotic active substance (Dextran 70, 0.1 g/ml) added to the perfusate with the aim of counteracting the negative tissue pressure. Dialysate volume was found to be fully restored (100 +/- 4%) during exercise. It is concluded that a marked negative tissue pressure is generated in the peritendinous space around the Achilles tendon during exercise in humans. Negative tissue pressure could lead to fluid shift and could be involved in the increase in blood flow previously noted in the peritendinous tissue during exercise (H. Langberg, J. Bulow, and M. Kjaer. Acta Physiol. Scand. 163: 149-153, 1998; H. Langberg, J. Bulow, and M. Kjaer. Clin. Physiol. 19: 89-93, 1999).  (+info)

Atraumatic bilateral Achilles tendon rupture: an association of systemic steroid treatment. (5/488)

A case of bilateral Achilles tendon rupture associated with steroid use is reported. This case illustrates the importance of taking a thorough drug history in cases of tendon rupture. In lower limb tendon rupture all patients, especially those on steroids, should be warned of the increased risk of contralateral injury.  (+info)

Achilles tendinitis associated with fluoroquinolones. (6/488)

AIMS: To determine whether there is an association between use of fluoroquinolones and tendinitis in a large population under everyday circumstances. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was carried out in a dynamic population. Data came from the IPCI-database which consists of all data on consultations, morbidity, prescriptions and other interventions, as registered by GPs in a source population of approximately 250 000 persons. For this study data were collected from 41 general practices in the period from January 1st, 1995 through December 31st, 1996. All persons treated with either fluoroquinolones, amoxicillin, trimethoprim, cotrimoxazole or nitrofurantoin were followed from the first day of treatment until the outcome of interest, death, transfer to another practice, or end of the study period, whichever came first. The risk window was defined as the legend duration +1 month. Potential cases were defined as a registration of a tendinitis or tendon rupture. Patients with a history of tendinitis or tendon rupture, preceding trauma or inadequate diagnoses were excluded on the basis of a review of the patient profiles and additional clinical data, blinded as to the exposure status. Results were adjusted for age, gender, concurrent corticosteroid exposure and number of GP visits. RESULTS: There were 1841 users of fluoroquinolones and 9406 users of the other antibacterial drugs with an average duration of 9 and 7 days, respectively. Tendinitis or tendon rupture was registered in 97 profiles, but after review only 22 complied with the case definition. The adjusted relative risk of tendinitis to fluoroquinolones was 3. 7 (95%CI: 0.9-15.1) for Achilles tendinitis and 1.3 (95%CI: 0.4-4.7) for other types of tendinitis. Achilles tendinitis to ofloxacin had a relative risk of 10.1 (95%CI: 2.2-46.0) and an excess risk of 15 cases per 100 000 exposure days. CONCLUSIONS: Although the numbers in our study are small, our results suggest that some fluoroquinolones may increase the risk of Achilles tendinitis, and that this risk increase is highest for ofloxacin.  (+info)

Percutaneous repair of the ruptured tendo Achillis. (7/488)

Percutaneous repair of the ruptured tendo Achillis has a low rate of failure and negligible complications with the wound, but the sural nerve may be damaged. We describe a new technique which minimises the risk of injury to this nerve. The repair is carried out using three midline stab incisions over the posterior aspect of the tendon. A No. 1 nylon suture on a 90 mm cutting needle approximates the tendon with two box stitches. The procedure can be carried out under local anaesthesia. We reviewed 27 patients who had a percutaneous repair at a median interval of 35 months after the injury. They returned to work at four weeks and to sport at 16. One developed a minor wound infection and another complex regional pain syndrome type II. There were no injuries to the sural nerve or late reruptures. This technique is simple to undertake and has a low rate of complications.  (+info)

Teasing out the truth about collagen. (8/488)

Of all of the non-mineral constituents of the mammalian body there is more collagen than anything else except water and possibly fat. Nevertheless our understanding of the physiology of collagen is rudimentary. All cells and tissues are supported by a network of collagen fibres, the arrangement of which appears to be specifically site adaptive. We know a lot about the biochemistry of collagen, and its many subtypes: for example, all collagen molecules are made within fibroblasts (or modifications of them such as osteocytes), then the oversized collagen molecule is secreted in a soluble form, with hydrophilic ends which are enzymatically cleaved to leave the insoluble core collagen (tropocollagen) beached in the extracellular space. We know that collagen is made relatively immortal by being cross-linked and rather impervious to proteolysis. However, we do not know much about what governs collagen synthesis or its breakdown in the human body. It is important to know, not simply because like Everest, collagen presents a large unignorable mass. We need to understand collagen metabolism in order to understand how we grow, adapt to the environment, maintain our adult shapes and then wrinkle and crumble as we age. Collagen diseases are relatively common and almost certainly if we knew more about how, for example, the collagen framework of bone is laid down and turned over we would understand much more about osteopenia of old age. The problem in finding out has been that collagen is so difficult to study. It turns over relatively slowly, and that part of it that is cross-linked and forms mature collagen is, it seems, with us for life come hell, high-water or famine. The body reduces to mainly skin and bone-collagen in extremis. Because the system as a whole is so sluggish, it is difficult to see changes in indices of collagen metabolism. However, not all the body collagen seems to be as fixed, and indeed collagen in some tissues must turn over, enabling remodelling and adaptation, rather quickly. Think about the stiffness and discomfort that accompanies un-accustomed exercise, which not only abates with time but ceases to occur once the exercise has become customary. What is happening to collagen protein turnover in these circumstances? One obvious way to study protein turnover, even of collagen, is to follow the incorporation of stable isotope markers such as proline into the tissue (although the breakdown is harder to quantify), but this is technically difficult and requires biopsy of the tissue in question. Another way is to follow the appearance in biological fluids of markers of collagen turnover. Since the propeptides which make collagen soluble are cleaved as collagen is deposited extracellularly, their concentration is an index of the rate of collagen synthesis; similarly when tropocollagen is degraded by extracellular proteases, specific N- and C-terminal fragments are released, the amount of which scales with the rate of collagen breakdown. These bits of collagen find their way into the blood. However, assaying them there introduces non-specificity and dilution, rendering interpretation difficult. The ideal would be to measure them in the extracellular fluid at the site of production. This of course is not easy in vivo. One of the delights of the paper by Langberg and colleagues in this issue of The Journal of Physiology (Langberg et al. 1999) is the sheer cheek with which the authors decided to use the microdialysis technique to do this. Microdialysis is a technique whereby a slowly perfused, thin-walled membranous tube is introduced into the extracellular space and the collected fluid assayed for molecules which have diffused into it. Until now the idea of using microdialysis to measure concentrations of molecules much bigger than 300 Da would be regarded as ludicrous. (ABSTRACT TRUNCATED)  (+info)

An Achilles tendon rupture, also known as an Achilles tendon tear, is the snapping or pulling apart of the Achilles tendon into two pieces. Achilles tendon ruptures can be full ruptures or partial ruptures. A physician may be required to distinguish between acute Achilles tendinosis and a partial Achilles tendon rupture. Tennis Leg is a rupture of the connection between the calf muscle and the Achilles tendon. Achilles tendonitis is an inflammation of the Achilles tendon: it is much less common than, but often confused with, Achilles tendinosis. Achilles tendons can also be lacerated or crushed. Causes The Achilles tendon can grow weak and thin with age and lack of use. Then it becomes prone to injury or rupture. Achilles tendon rupture is more common in those with preexisting tendinitis of the Achilles tendon. Certain illnesses (such as arthritis and diabetes) and medications (such as corticosteroids and some antibiotics, including quinolones such as levofloxacin [Levaquin] and ciprofloxacin ...
The most common Achilles tendon injuries are Achilles tendinosis (also known as Achilles tendinopathy or misspelled Achilles tendonopathy) and Achilles tendon rupture. Achilles tendinosis is a soreness and stiffness that comes on gradually and continues to worsen until treated. It often starts with stiffness and creaking when first getting out of bed in the morning. Lightly pinching the Achilles tendon with the forefinger and thumb will indicate soreness. Achilles tendinosis is a common injury among middle and long distance runners. Achilles tendon rupture is a partial or complete tear of the Achilles tendon. It comes on suddenly, sometimes with a popping sound, and is debilitating. Partial and full Achilles tendon ruptures are most likely to occur in sports requiring sudden eccentric stretching, such as sprinting and racquet sports ...
Treating Achilles Tendon Injuries Of all of the tendons in the human body, the Achilles tendon is the largest. The muscles at the posterior of the lower leg are attached to the calcaneous (heel bone) by the Achilles tendon. Because if its location, the Achilles tendon must withstand a great deal of pressure during strenuous exercise - especially sporting activities that involve a lot of pivoting.. Two types of injury are quite common for the Achilles tendon:. #1 Achilles tendonitis is inflammation caused by overuse.. Second is the tearing of the Achilles tendon.. What is Achilles Tendonitis?. Achilles tendonitis is caused by a sudden increase in the intensity of activity to which the Achilles tendon is subjected. So, for example, if you suddenly change the type of training you are doing or greatly increase the intensity of your existing training, you are likely to experience Achilles tendonitis. This is why you must take great care when adding very strenuous exercise to your routine or when ...
Foot and ankle surgeon, Dr John Kennedy in New York, NY offers Achilles tendon repair to treats Achilles tendon ruptures, Achilles tendon injuries and Achilles tendon tears.
BACKGROUND: Achilles tendon rupture affects | 11,000 people each year in the UK, leading to prolonged periods away from work, sports and social activities. Traditionally, the ruptured tendon is held still in a plaster cast for ≥ 8 weeks. Functional bracing is an alternative treatment that allows patients to mobilise earlier, but there is little evidence about how bracing affects patients recovery. OBJECTIVES: To measure the Achilles Tendon Rupture Score, quality of life, complications and resource use of patients receiving non-operative treatment for an Achilles tendon rupture treated with plaster cast compared with those treated with functional bracing. DESIGN: This was a multicentre, randomised, pragmatic, two-group superiority trial. SETTING: The setting was 39 NHS hospitals. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 540 adult patients treated non-operatively for Achilles tendon rupture were randomised from July 2016 to May 2018. Exclusion criteria included presenting after 14 days, having had previous rupture and

Patients who have an Achilles tendon injury typically feel pain in the calf. The Achilles tendon connects the heel to the calf muscles, and may become damaged or torn while participating in certain sporting activities. It enables the foot to point and flex, which is necessary in order to walk, run, and jump. The Achilles tendon may tear or become ruptured as a result of repetitive stress on the feet and ankles. It can happen gradually from consistent running, or happen suddenly from an increase in exercise intensity. Some of the symptoms that are typically associated with this condition can include swelling surrounding the heel, severe pain in the back of the leg, and difficulty walking. If you feel you have endured an Achilles tendon injury, it is advised that you are under the care of a podiatrist.. Achilles tendon injuries need immediate attention to avoid future complications. If you have any concerns, contact Dr. Jeffrey Wachtel of Wachtel Family Foot Care. Our doctor can provide the care ...
BACKGROUND: Partial Achilles tendon ruptures are not always easy to diagnose. A history including a sudden onset of pain, and/or relative weakness in plantar flexion force, are indicators. The most loaded side of the Achilles tendon is the dorsal side (skin side). OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the ultrasound (US) and Doppler (CD) findings in patients with a suspected partial rupture in the Achilles tendon. Material and METHODS: Seventeen patients (16 men and 1 woman) with a mean age of 36 years (range 23-71) were examined clinically and by US+CD because of midportion Achilles tendon pain. There was an acute onset in 14/17 patients, and all had painful weakness during tendon loading activity. RESULTS: In all patients the US examination showed a partial Achilles tendon rupture, presented as a disrupted dorsal (skin side) tendon line and an irregular tendon structure mainly located in the dorsal and mid-tendon. The size of the rupture varied from 1/3 to 2/3 of the tendon thickness. In the dorsal part of ...
The Achilles tendon is a strong bands of fibrous connective tissue that attaches the calf muscle to the heel bone. When the muscle contracts, the tendon transmits the power of this contraction to the heel bone, producing movement. The Achilles tendon ruptures because the load applied to it is greater than the tendons ability to withstand that load. This usually occurs as a result of a sudden, quick movement where there is a forceful stretch of the tendon or a contraction of the muscles eg: jumping, sprinting, or pushing off to serve in tennis. This occurs most often in sports that require a lot of stopping and starting (acceleration-deceleration sports) such as tennis, basketball, netball and squash. The Achilles tendon is on average 15cm in length. Most ruptures occur 2-6cm above where the tendon inserts into the heel bone. This is the narrowest portion of the Achilles tendon and is also the area with the poorest blood supply. achilles tendon rupture is most common when the muscles and tendon ...
Achilles tendon rupture is one of the most common tendon injuries in the adult population. The incidence of this injury is increasing as aging adults continue their participation in high-demand sports. Although the impact of an Achilles tendon rupture is substantial, often resulting in prolonged disability and rehabilitation. Studies have showed that the operation treatment of acute Achilles tendon ruptures had some advantages. But the rebuild of blood supply was not involved in previous studies. And the epitenon of tendon is the interior layer, closest to the endotenons which contains the vascular supply. Main difference of two suture methods were if the epitenon was repaired and sewed indirectly or unrepaired and sewed directly ...
Abstract: Using Tensiomyography we evaluated a patient that had Achilles tendon rupture surgery. The contralateral normal side measurements were also performed for evaluation and comparison of the site of injury.. The occurrence of Achilles tendon rupture happens in 2% of the population per year. In recent years there has been an increased interest in middle-aged and older patients in physical conditioning and joining in with athletic activities. There are two types of Achilles tendon ruptures. One is from direct trauma and another from indirect causes. Indirect causes are more frequent and result from a combination of mechanical stress and degeneration. Achilles tendon operation results are affected by several factors like age, muscle-tendon flexibility, strength, rupture site, etc. The factors that interest us most are muscle-tendon flexibility and strength of the calf muscle. TMG can evaluate the function of skeletal muscle through contraction time (Tc), maximal displacement (Dm), and other ...
Achilles tendon rupture and achilles tendon injury are treated by Mr. Rajeev Suneja in Manchester and Cheshire. He also performs achilles tendon surgery.
Rupture of the Achilles tendon often leads to long-term morbidity, particularly calf weakness associated with tendon elongation. Operative repair of Achilles tendon ruptures leads to reduced tendon elongation. Tendon lengthening is a key problem in the restoration of function following Achilles tendon rupture. A study was performed to determine differences in initial separation, strength and failure characteristics of differing sutures and numbers of core strands in a percutaneous Achilles tendon repair model in response to initial loading. Nineteen bovine Achilles tendons were repaired using a percutaneous/minimally invasive technique with a combination of a modified Bunnell suture proximally and a Kessler suture distally, using non-absorbable 4-strand 6-strand repairs and absorbable 8-strand sutures. Specimens were then cyclically loaded using phases of 10 cycles of 100 N, 100 cycles of 100 N, 100 cycles of 190 N consistent with early range of motion training and weight-bearing, before being loaded to
In the US, by far the most common treatment choice for an achilles tendon rupture is an open surgery. In this type of surgery, one large incision is made at the back of the leg in order to access the tendon. If the gap between ruptured tendon ends is too large, a tendon transfer from the toe or other place is often necessary. There are many variations in surgical technique, type of stitches used, type of anesthesia, and more.

It is rare to hear about an athlete who has surgery to repair a torn achilles tendon, and then re-ruptures the same achilles tendon while recovering. Many athletes re-rupture several years after the initial rupture, usually while playing their main sport. However, re-rupture rates in the weeks immediately following surgery are extremely low in the general populace, and considering that rich athletes have access to the best surgeons, equipment, doctors and physios, it almost never happens to them.. However, Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall, who ruptured his achilles tendon in 2014 at the age of 30, re-ruptured it five weeks after surgery during a slip at home. A similar thing happened to Philadelphia Eagles left tackle Jason Peters in 2012.. This makes me even more pleased at choosing the non-surgical option to repair my achilles tendon rupture in 2013. ...
Achilles tendon ruptures commonly occur in athletic individuals in their 30s and 40s while performing activities that require sudden acceleration or changes in direction (ex. basketball, tennis, etc.). Patients usually describe a sharp pain in their heel region almost as if they were struck in the back of the leg. The diagnosis of an acute Achilles tendon rupture is made on clinical examination as x-rays will reveal the ankle bones to be normal. The Achilles is the largest and strongest tendon in the body. It is subject to 2-3 times body weight during normal walking so regaining normal Achilles tendon function is critical. Achilles tendon ruptures can be successfully treated non-operatively, or operatively, but they must be treated. Surgical treatment leads to a faster recovery and a lower rate of re-rupture. However, surgery can be associated with very serious complications such as an infection or wound healing problems. For this reason non-operative treatment may be preferable in many ...
Orthopaedics Today Europe | CHICAGO — According to a presenter at the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society Annual Meeting, nonoperative treatment of acute Achilles tendon ruptures yielded good functional outcomes, high patient satisfaction and a high return-to-sport rate.“Two-third of patents were able to return to high levels activity and [this was] more than 90% in the low-level [activity]
All patients with badminton-related acute Achilles tendon ruptures registered during 1990 to 1994 at the University Hospital of Umeå were retrospectively followed up using a questionnaire. Thirty-one patients (mean age, 36.0 years), 27 men and 4 women, were included. Thirty patients (97%) described themselves as recreational players or beginners. The majority of the injuries (29 of 31, 94%) happened at the middle or end of the planned game. Previous local symptoms had been noticed by five patients (16%). Long-term results showed that patients treated with surgery had a significantly shorter sick leave absence than patients treated without surgery (50 versus 75 days). There was no obvious selection favoring any treatment modality. None of the surgically treated patients had reruptures, but two reruptures occurred in the nonsurgically treated group.

Frank Boehm (Nanoapps Medical Inc. Founder) has contributed to Platelet-Rich Plasma Applications for Achilles Tendon Repair: A Bridge between Biology and Surgery, published by International Journal of Molecular Sciences/ MDP.. Abstract: Achilles tendon ruptures are very common tendon ruptures and their incidence is increasing in modern society, resulting in work incapacity and months off sport, which generate a need for accelerated and successful therapeutic repair strategy.. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is emerging as adjuvant human blood-derived constructs to assist Achilles tendon rupture treatment. However, myriad PRP preparation methods in conjunction with poor standardization in the modalities of their applications impinge on the consistent effectiveness of clinical and structural outcomes regarding their therapeutic efficacy. The purpose of this review is to provide some light on the application of PRP for Achilles tendon ruptures.. PRP has many characteristics that make it an attractive ...

BACKGROUND: In patients with chronic Achilles tendinopathy, augmentation with flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendon transfer can be performed to improve pain and functional limitations. There are no reports of postoperative imaging for evaluating tendon integration, inflammatory alterations or degeneration of the FHL muscle. The purpose of this study was to evaluate postoperative MR imaging based on clinical outcome and isokinetic strength. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 13 patients with chronic Achilles tendinopathy (10 ruptures) underwent augmentation with FHL transfer. Clinical parameters, isokinetic strength and outcome measurements (AOFAS, SF-36) were evaluated at an average followup of 46.5 months. Qualitative and quantitative analyses of postoperative MRI were conducted using the non-operated side for comparison. RESULTS: All patients had a significant reduction of pain. The operated side had a torque deficit of 35% for plantar flexion. Ten patients returned to their former level of activity. MRI ...
The Achilles tendon is a strong bands of fibrous connective tissue that attaches the calf muscle to the heel bone. When the muscle contracts, the tendon transmits the power of this contraction to the heel bone, producing movement. The Achilles tendon ruptures because the load applied to it is greater than the tendons ability to withstand that load. This usually occurs as a result of a sudden, quick movement where there is a forceful stretch of the tendon or a contraction of the muscles eg: jumping, sprinting, or pushing off to serve in tennis. This occurs most often in sports that require a lot of stopping and starting (acceleration-deceleration sports) such as tennis, basketball, netball and squash. The Achilles tendon is on average 15cm in length. Most ruptures occur 2-6cm above where the tendon inserts into the heel bone. This is the narrowest portion of the Achilles tendon and is also the area with the poorest blood supply. achilles tendon rupture is most common when the muscles and tendon ...
Aims: To describe the sonoelastographic appearance of the Achilles tendon in acromegalic patients and to determine whether the blood concentrations of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) are associated with the various sonographic elasticity types of Achilles tendons. Material and methods: Eighty-four Achilles tendons of 42 acromegaly patients and 84 Achilles tendons of 42 healthy volunteers were assessed with sonoelastography. The tendons were classified into two main types according to the elasticity features: type 1 blue/green (hard tissue) and type 2 yellow/red within green (intermediate-soft tissue). Two subtypes of these types were also defined. According to the definition, the elasticity of the tissue was in a spectrum ranging from hard to soft as the type progressed from 1a to 2b. Results: The mean thickness of Achilles tendons in patients with acromegaly was significantly higher compared with healthy Achilles tendons (5.1 +/- 0.7 mm vs. 4.4 +/- 0.5, ...

N2 - When studying muscle and whole-body function in children with cerebral palsy (CP), knowledge about both internal and external moment arms is essential since they determine the mechanical advantage of a muscle over an external force. Here we asked if Achilles tendon moment arm (MAAT) length is different in children with CP and age-matched typically developing (TD) children, and if MAATcan be predicted from anthropometric measurements. Sixteen children with CP (age: 10y 7 m ± 3y, 7 hemiplegia, 12 diplegia, GMFCS level: I (11) and II (8)) and twenty TD children (age: 10y 6 m ± 3y) participated in this case-control study. ...
Todays question about the Broncos comes from Slater Raub in Louisville, Ohio.. Q: Did the players who trained together during the NFL lockout last year help themselves more than the players who trained on their own?. A: The Broncos were pleased with the condition of nearly all their players when the lockout ended last summer. The players arrived at training camp in good shape. During the lockout, many of them worked together with Loren Landow, the director of performance enhancement at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic.. Achilles tendon injuries caused the most concern in NFL training camps last year. Ten players in the league, including Broncos cornerback SydQuan Thompson, suffered an Achilles tendon injury before Week 1 of the regular season.. Researchers associated with Ohio State looked into the issue and concluded that these numbers have already exceeded all previously reported Achilles tendon ruptures that normally occur over an entire NFL season. For a period covering 20 NFL seasons ...

Achilles tendinopathy is one of the most common overuse injuries in running, and forefoot pronation, seen in flatfeet participants, has been proposed to cause additional loading across the Achilles tendon. Foot orthoses are one of the common and effective conservative treatment prescribed for Achilles tendinopathy, it works by correcting the biomechanical malalignment and reducing tendon load. Previous studies have shown reduction of Achilles Tendon load (ATL) during running by using customized arch support orthosis (CASO) or an orthotic heel lift (HL). However, there are still little biomechanical evidence and comparative studies to guide orthotic prescriptions for Achilles tendinopathy management. Therefore, this study seeks to investigate the two currently employed orthotic treatment options for Achilles tendinopathy: CASO and HL for the reduction of ATL and Achilles tendon loading rate (ATLR) in recreational runners with flatfeet. Twelve participants were recruited and run along the runway in the
Dr Michelle Wolcott offers Achilles tendon tear repair in Inverness and Denver, CO. She performs Achilles tendon rupture surgery to decrease the recurrence of the Achilles tendon.
In diagnosing an Achilles tendon rupture, the foot and ankle surgeon will ask questions about how and when the injury occurred and whether the patient has previously injured the tendon or experienced similar symptoms. The surgeon will examine the foot and ankle, feeling for a defect in the tendon that suggests a tear. Range of motion and muscle strength will be evaluated and compared to the uninjured foot and ankle. If the Achilles tendon is ruptured, the patient will have less strength in pushing down (as on a gas pedal) and will have difficulty rising on the toes.. The diagnosis of an Achilles tendon rupture is typically straightforward and can be made through this type of examination. In some cases, however, the surgeon may order an MRI or other advanced imaging tests.. Treatment ...

DDr Adam Sangeorzan in Issaquah, Snoqualmie and Seattle, WA offers Achilles tendon repair surgery to treat Achilles tendon injuries and tears.
By Rachael Street, Physiotherapist. Achilles tendon pain is a common complaint I see at the clinic. People often describe always having had tight calves and since starting a new activity or type of exercise, have then developed pain in one or both Achilles tendons.. Yes, if the calf muscles are tight, this puts extra load through the Achilles tendon and therefore can cause an irritation of the tendon as it attaches into the heel. But why is the calf so tight?. I like to look at things from both the bottom-up and the top-down. Firstly, if the foot and ankle does not have good biomechanical alignment (eg. feet roll inwards), extra load will be placed upon the calf causing it to get tight and therefore impact the Achilles tendon. Adjustments to footwear or the addition of orthotics may be useful here.. Secondly, if the glutes and core are not working well, in order to control the tracking of the knee with activity, the calf will again overload and cause the Achilles tendon to become ...
Solving Foot Concerns. Overview An Achilles tendon rupture, or tear, is a common condition. This typically occurs in the unconditioned individual who sustains the rupture while playing sports, or perhaps, from tripping. There is a vigorous contraction of the muscle and the tendon tears. Causes The Achilles tendon is most commonly injured by sudden plantarflexion or dorsiflexion of the ankle, or by forced dorsiflexion of the ankle outside its normal range of motion. Other mechanisms by which the Achilles can be torn involve sudden direct trauma to the tendon, or sudden activation of the Achilles after atrophy from prolonged periods of inactivity. Some other common tears can occur from overuse while participating in intense sports. Twisting or jerking motions can also contribute to injury. Fluoroquinolone antibiotics, famously ciprofloxacin, are known to increase the risk of tendon rupture, particularly achilles. Symptoms Symptoms of an Achilles tendon rupture include sensation that someone or something
Using shear wave elastography, we have for the first time, demonstrated that people with gout exhibit significantly lower stiffness in the AT compared with age/sex matched non-gout participants. Previously, Aubrey and colleagues reported that those with mid-portion AT tendinopathy demonstrated significantly lower mean SWE velocities than did those with a non-pathological AT. The loss of Achilles tendon stiffness we identified in those with gout was often greater than that demonstrated using a similar protocol in otherwise healthy runners with known Achilles tendinopathy. The mean SWE values determined by Payne et al ranged from 7.91m/s - 9.56m/s compared with mean SWE values in our participants with gout of 4.75 m/s - 10 m/s. Recent work suggests Achilles tendinopathy in healthy subjects involves both thickening of the tendon and softening (as reflected in lower SWE values), however our participants with gout did not report symptoms of AT.. Tendon pathology in the lower limbs has been shown to ...

Previous research has demonstrated that ground reaction force (GRF) recorded during eccentric ankle exercise is characterized by greater power in the 8- to 12-Hz bandwidth when compared with that recorded during concentric ankle exercise. Subsequently, it was suggested that vibrations in this bandwidth may underpin the beneficial effect of eccentric loading in tendon repair. However, this observation has been made only in individuals without Achilles tendinopathy. This research compared the force frequency characteristics of eccentric and concentric exercises in individuals with and without Achilles tendinopathy. METHODS: Eleven male adults with unilateral midportion Achilles tendinopathy and nine control male adults without tendinopathy participated in the research. Kinematics and GRF were recorded while the participants performed a common eccentric rehabilitation exercise protocol and a concentric equivalent. Ankle joint kinematics and the frequency power spectrum of the resultant GRF were calculated.
Context: Irvin M. Korr, PhD, hypothesized that sensitivity of the monosynaptic stretch reflex (ie, deep tendon reflex) plays a major role in the restriction-of-motion characteristic of somatic dysfunction, and that restoration of range of motion through osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) could be achieved by resetting of the stretch receptor gain.. Objective: To test Korrs hypothesis in the context of Achilles tendinitis, examining whether OMT applied to patients with Achilles tendinitis reduces the strength of the stretch reflex.. Methods: Subjects were recruited through public advertisements and referrals from healthcare professionals. There were no recruitment restrictions based on demographic factors. Amplitudes for stretch reflex and H-reflex (Hoffmann reflex) in the triceps surae muscles (the soleus together with the lateral and medial heads of the gastrocnemius) were measured in subjects with diagnosed Achilles tendonitis (n=16), both before and after OMT. These measurements were ...
BACKGROUND: Altered expression of several cytokines and growth factors has been shown in biopsies of tendinopathy tissue. Biopsy studies are however challenged by capacity to obtain i) healthy tissue for comparison, ii) multiple samples to monitor cytokine dynamics, and iii) tissue from recent onset tendinopathy. An alternative is to study cytokines in blood samples. Whether cytokines in blood samples reflect tissue levels and the degree of tendinopathy is unknown.. OBJECTIVE: To measure serum concentration of six cytokines and growth factors suggested to have a role in tendon response to load among individuals with chronic Achilles tendinopathy and controls.. DESIGN: In this cross-sectional study, serum cytokine concentrations were measured from fasting blood samples on the BioPlex-200.. SETTING: Sports Medicine Unit, Umeå University.. PARTICIPANTS: Participants were recreationally active individuals. Achilles tendinopathy (n=22) was diagnosed on clinical criteria and confirmed with ultrasound ...
COLUMBUS, Ohio) March 2015 - From elite athletes to weekend warriors, more than 250,000 Achilles tendon injuries occur every year in the United States, according to The Bone & Joint Journal. Despite the fact that the Achilles is the strongest and thickest connective tissue in the body, its also one of the most vulnerable to injury. That is why Dr. Timothy Miller, a sports medicine expert at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, has developed a new surgical technique to repair torn Achilles tendons.. Were constantly looking for new and better ways to do surgery, make it safer, make it faster, make it more efficient and minimize the risk of complications, said Miller. Given how strong the repair is and the minimal risk of return, or minimal risk of re-tear, I think it will potentially become the gold standard for repair techniques.. The new procedure strengthens the injury by moving suture knots away from the injury site, unlike the old method which brought together knots at the ...

Chronic pain and disability are unfortunately common in Achilles tendon pain. Outcome after surgery is often poor. Also tendon pain can be resistant to treatment and may lead to cessation of hobbies or careers.. Recently eccentric exercise (defined as muscle loading where tension develops as physical lengthening occurs) has become a cornerstone in managing tendon pain due to an increasing amount of favorable research. Eccentric exercises are considered to be non-invasive, safe, and appear to be important for a successful outcome.. One exercise program has been extensively adopted in research and clinical practice for Achilles pain. It recommends individuals perform 180 repetitions a day. However there appears to be little scientific rationale for this number. Consequently there may be significant implications for patient compliance, satisfaction, and overall treatment efficacy in a strategy which is encouraged to be uncomfortable.. Fifty two adults (18-70 years old), with mid-Achilles tendon ...
This is the first report on incidence rates of mid-portion Achilles tendinopathy in general practice.

Achilles tendinopathy (AT) is a prevalent condition among runners and military personnel. Although ankle dorsiflexion (DF) range of motion (ROM) as measured with the knee bent has not been previously associated with AT, the literature concerning its role is limited. In addition, the role of lower extremity movement pattern in the pathogenesis of AT has not been studied prospectively. The purpose of this study was to further explore the role of ankle DF ROM as measured with the knee bent and that of lower extremity movement pattern as risk factors for mid-portion AT. Seventy healthy male military recruits (mean ± SD age, height and body mass of 19.6 ± 1.0 years, 176.0 ± 10.0 cm, and 71.5 ± 7.4 kg) participated in this study. Ankle DF ROM as measured with the knee bent in weight-bearing (WB) and non-weight-bearing (NWB), as well as lower extremity quality of movement during a lateral step down (LSD) test were measured at baseline. Participants were then followed for a 6-month period of army basic

Myostatin (MSTN) is a secreted protein that acts as a negative regulator of skeletal muscle growth. Deficiencies in this protein have been shown to increase muscle mass in a variety of animal models. Consequently, clinical suppression of myostatin is now being pursued as a therapeutic strategy to counteract the muscle wasting that occurs in patients with degenerative neuromuscular diseases such as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). Although research supports the use of myostatin suppression therapy to increase muscle mass, investigation into the effects of myostatin on tendon is limited. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of myostatin deficiency by characterizing the structural, material and compositional properties of the Achilles tendons from mature (16 week old) male myostatin deficient (MSTN-/-), wild type (MSTN+/+), and heterozygous (MSTN+/-) mice. Specifically, we tested the hypothesis that myostatin deficiency is associated with stiffer and stronger tendons, that these effects
The critical role of tendons in body mechanics and injury and degeneration of this tissue can highly be debilitating, resulting in substantial pain, disability and costs. Capparis spinossa is one of the most common aromatic plants growing in Iran. The major objective of the study was to assess Achilles tendon healing in a rabbit model by local injection of ethanolicextract of C. spinossa. Nine adult white New Zealand male rabbits were anesthetized and partial thickness tenotomies were created on both hindlimbs. The C. spinossa extract and normal saline were respectively injected daily to the treatment and control groups for three days post-operatively. Histological analysis on days 7, 14 and 28 post-rupture demonstrated higher regenerating activity and capacity in treated groups than the control group. This was illustrated by fewer inflammatory cells, a larger number of blood vessels, further fibroblasts and increased structural organization with further longitudinally oriented collagen fibers in the

Depending upon the severity of the injury, physical therapy may also include:. ...
Achilles tendinitis is a medical condition in which there is irritation of the large tendon in back of ankle as well as inflammation. Know the causes, etiology, symptoms, treatment-ice, heel pads, manual therapy.
Achilles tendon (AT) is the strongest human tendon. AT disorders are common among athletes. AT pathologies vary from tendinopathy to frank rupture. Diagnosis is made clinically. Imaging modalities are used adjunctively. Management of AT rupture in athletes is challenging to surgeons due to worldwide growing popularity of sports and potential social and financial impact of AT injury to an athlete. Hence, new surgical techniques aim at attaining quick recovery with good outcome, finding similar results with both open and percutaneous techniques when accompanying these with functional rehabilitation protocols. Non-operative strategies include shoe wear modification, physiotherapy and extracorporeal shock wave therapy. Surgical interventions vary based on the AT pathology nature and extent. Direct repair can work for small-sized defects. V-Y gastrocnemius advancement could approximate the tendon edges for repair within 2-8 cm original gap. Gastrocnemius turndown can bridge tendon loss > 8 cm. Autogenous,
A ruptured Achilles heel is a painful injury that requires early treatment. An appointment with Dallas Podiatry Works will get you back on your feet.
Heel lifts, along with shoe modifications (i.e. wearing a shoe with a higher heel to toe drop), are a very common treatment method. The logic is fairly simple-by providing a rigid or semi-rigid wedge underneath your heel when it sits in your shoe, your Achilles will not be stretched as much when your foot is on the ground. This is very reasonable in a biomechanical sense; people with Achilles tendon problems tend to find that running uphill, running fast, and running in low-heeled shoes like racing flats and spikes all aggravate their Achilles. Surprisingly, though, there is relatively little scientific research on the efficacy of heel lifts for treating Achilles tendonitis. One study confirmed that walking with a heel lift reduces calf muscle activity and correspondingly increases shin muscle activity, just as we would expect.61 However, this study used some extremely aggressive heel lift heights: 19, 38, and 57 mm- thats ¾, 1½, and 2 ¼ inches! But a more recent study using more realistic ...

Achilles tendinopathy generally does not get better on its own. It will feel a little bit better with rest, but once you start doing the aggravating exercise or activity again it will become painful. Continuing to do aggravating activities may advance the process and prolong recovery time.. The goals of physiotherapy treatment are to address any predisposing factors, reduce pain and inflammation, and promote healing to restore the muscle and tendon.. Your physiotherapist will provide you with a targeted tendon strengthening program to make it stronger and more accustomed to load. This starts with gentle sustained contractions, and progresses to heavy fast contractions.. Furthermore, your physiotherapist will address the factors that caused this injury in the first place, to help reduce the risk of the injury returning in the future. Some things your physiotherapist might address include:. ...

There are many factors that may play a role, says University of Alabama at Birmingham exercise physiologist Gary Hunter, Ph.D., and tendon length may be an important one. In findings just published in Medicine & Science in Sports and Exercise, a journal of the American College of Sports Medicine, Hunter shows that a longer Achilles tendon leads to greater energy efficiency in running, which in turn might enable better running performance.. Longer Achilles tendons appear to generate more power because they stretch more, said Hunter, a professor in the UAB Schools of Education and Health Professions. Its like a rubber band; the longer the stretch, the more force that can be generated to provide forward velocity while running.. When describing running, Hunter says muscles and tendons work together in a muscle/tendon complex. During the landing phase of running and jumping - as the foot hits the ground - the tendons, particularly the Achilles tendon, stretch. Longer tendons have more capacity ...
The current work aimed to examine the long-term (1.5 years) mechanosensitivity of AT biomechanical and morphological properties and their association with the muscle force production capacity within a group of older individuals. Our hypotheses, that the tendon stiffness in older adults increases after medium-term exercise mainly due to changes in tendon material properties and that after long-term exercise, hypertrophy of the tendon might also induce changes in tendon mechanical properties, were partly confirmed, as tendon hypertrophy was identified after 14 weeks of an exercise intervention.. The cross-sectional study revealed a 33% higher tendon stiffness, 17% higher Youngs modulus and a 12% higher mean free AT CSA along the entire tendon length for GroupStrong in comparison to GroupWeak (∼42% difference in the TS muscle strength). These findings show that the higher tendon stiffness for the stronger subjects is caused by a larger tendon CSA in combination with an intrinsic tendon material ...
