Achilles tendinopathy

Achilles tendinopathy

 

Achilles Tendinopathy is damage to the band of fibres that originate in the calf muscle and insert into the heel bone. You may experience pain, stiffness and swelling making it difficult to move freely. This can easily become a chronic condition if left untreated. It can affect anyone but particularly those involved in sports, commonly through a specific injury or overuse. Also to consider, blood flow, lack of flexibility, metabolic and hormonal causes.

A combination of biomechanical assessment, exercise, anti  inflammatory techniques and  the  possible use of  orthoses are among treatments available.
