Unfortunately, relief for Achilles tendon ruptures does not happen overnight. Recovery times vary depending on if a surgical or non-surgical treatment approach is prescribed. "Treatment processes are dependent upon a patient's overall health, activity level, and ability to follow a functional rehabilitation protocol," said Jeffrey E. McAlister, DPM, FACFAS, a fellowship-trained Arizona foot and ankle surgeon and Fellow member of ACFAS.

According to Dr. McAlister, typically, unhealthy and less-active patients may choose a non-operative approach, since they are not trying to return to active sports. But, we should keep in mind that the re-rupture rate is roughly 10 percent higher with non-operative treatment. "A non-operative approach works well in a patient who does not have the expectation of aggressive sports and activities. This usually involves a lengthy functional rehabilitation process," said Dr. McAlister.

Experts point out that your feet are an early warning system for vascular disease. “Podiatrists are often the first physicians to spot and diagnose vascular disease,” says Dr. R. Daniel Davis, DPM, immediate past president of the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA). Although risk factors for vascular disease can vary from patient to patient, here are seven of the most common, some of which can be managed by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. 1. Smoking 2. Using oral contraceptives 3. Family history of vascular disease. 4. Diabetes 5.  Obesity 6. High cholesterol 7. High blood pressure.
 
If you see a suspicious spot, blister, or wound on your foot or ankle and you have one or more of the above risk factors, make an appointment with an APMA-member podiatrist right away. Podiatrists are the most qualified doctors to care for your feet, ankles, and related structures of the leg and can help you get an early diagnosis of vascular disease.
