HSS Orthopedic Surgeon Addresses Common Achilles Injuries for Runners

Paramus Daily Voice—March 29, 2016

In a recent article published by Paramus Daily Voice, Andrew J. Elliott, MD, a foot and ankle surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery, answers runners' questions about common Achilles tendon injuries that cause discomfort and impact running ability.

Dr. Elliott recommends that, "Stretching before and after activity may help prevent an Achilles rupture. Also, many of the running shoes these days have a slightly more elevated heel, which can take strain off the tendon. Varying your workout and cross training may help avoid overuse syndromes that can lead to tendon problems."
