Abstract

The achilles tendon is a structure formed by connective tissue that, due to overuse and overload, can develop acute or chronic tendinopathies or even complete rupture of the tendon. The treatment can be conservative with medication and physical therapy or in some cases surgical intervention with debridement or tendon reconstruction is necessary. In this short review, the evidence for the treatment of tendinopathies is presented.
