Achilles Tendinitis Treatment

Overview

Achilles tendonitis is a condition that causes inflammation and swelling of the Achilles tendon. The Achilles tendon is the connective tissue between the heel bone and the calf muscle.

Symtoms

Common symptoms of Achilles tendinitis include pain and stiffness along the Achilles tendon and, in severe cases, limited range of motion.

Causes

Achilles tendinitis is often caused by overuse or repetitive stress on the Achilles tendon, resulting from activities such as running, jumping, or sudden increases in physical activity. Poor footwear, inadequate stretching, and biomechanical factors such as high arches or flat feet can also contribute to the development of this condition.

Risk Factors

  • Sports or activities that involve repetitive running or jumping
  • Tight calf muscles or inadequate flexibility
  • Improper footwear or sudden changes in footwear
  • Flat feet or high arches

Prevention

  • Gradually increase the duration and intensity of physical activity
  • Regular stretching exercises for the calf muscles
  • Appropriate footwear with proper support and cushioning for the feet.
  • Orthotic inserts
