How do I know if I tore my Achilles tendon?

Achilles tendon injuries are common in the “weekend warrior.”  This injury is often described as feeling like someone kicked you in the back of the ankle. Inability to go up onto toes is a simple test to diagnose complete rupture, but often partial tears have occurred and evaluation by a podiatrist and possible MRI examination are required. Early treatment is important to prevent long term disability.
