What does a popping sound from my heel area mean?

Asked 2 years ago

I was working out this afternoon when I heard a popping sound come from my foot and it felt like it came from my Achilles tendon. It's slightly sore and I can't push my foot downward. Should I be seeking medical attention, or should I not worry about it and just rest it?

It's possible to hear a popping sound in the foot as the Achilles tendon slides over the bone. Coupled with the soreness and movement limitation, it may be Achilles tendonitis. You should consult your healthcare provider to confirm the diagnosis. In the interim, NSAIDs and custom orthotics can help you manage the symptoms.
