Achilles Tendonitis Treatment
The Achilles tendon is a tough band of fibrous tissue that connects the calf muscles to the heel bone. It’s the largest tendon in the body and is responsible for helping us to walk, run and jump. It’s a very hard-working tendon and is therefore quite prone to injury.
Achilles tendon pain can make it difficult to perform normal tasks such as exercise or even simply walking, and without proper treatment, the pain can become quite severe. This means that it’s really important to seek treatment for Achilles tendon pain as soon as it starts to develop. It’s also important to rest when you experience Achilles tendon pain, as pain is your body’s way of telling you when something is wrong.

It is a chronic pain of the achilles tendon (joins the calf and lower leg muscles to the heel of the foot), and often occurs due to overuse, for example by running. The initial overuse of the tendon may only result in slight tenderness, but if you continue to overuse it, the pain will quickly worsen and make exercise extremely painful.
It is important to see a chiropodist so that problems such as verruca’s, corns and ingrown toenails can be diagnosed and treated effectively and accurately. Mis-diagnosis is a common problem seen daily in our clinics, so we strive to rectify foot-related problems in a professional and efficient manner.
