An Achilles tendon that is torn or ruptured may take a while to heal, particularly if you were injured in a South Dakota motor vehicle accident or you tripped and fell. Many times the injury will not require surgical intervention and will heal on its own, although you may be laid up for a long period of time. At Zimmer, Duncan & Cole, LLP, our South Dakota personal injury attorneys understand that this may not be very comforting news to those of us living busy lifestyles. But as a reminder, it is important to seek medical treatment immediately after you have been injured for the best hopes of a quick recovery.

Our South Dakota personal injury lawyers list non-surgical interventions that may contribute to a full recovery of an Achilles tendon injury:

  • Rest and elevation
  • Ice
  • Compression on the injured area to decrease swelling
  • Anti-inflammatory medications to help alleviate the pain and swelling
  • Heel lift in the shoe for support
  • Stretching and strengthening exercises

Under normal circumstances, your Achilles tendon should recover fully after a few months. However, if these remedies are not successful, surgery may be required to repair the tendon or to remove tissue.

At Zimmer, Duncan & Cole, LLP, our experienced Sioux Falls personal injury lawyers take all injuries very seriously. An injury that puts a stop to your daily living and you ability to work can be considered catastrophic. If you have been injured in South Dakota, call our Sioux Falls or Parker office at (888) 733-2992 to speak with our attorneys about your situation. At Zimmer, Duncan & Cole, LLP, our lawyers will provide you with a fast and free consultation. If you or a loved one is suffering, don’t delay in getting the help you need. Call our office today.
