Factors that contributes to achilles tendonitis include:
- Sudden increased in activity.
- Tight calf muscles.
- Lack of arch support in feet.
- Improper footwear.
Patients with achilles tendonitis may experience:
- Pain at the achilles tendon during or after activities.
- Swelling at the tendon and ankle.
- Morning stiffness and pain.
Pain management and reducing inflammation are keys to manaing achilles tendonitis. Stretching and icing may help to reduce your symptoms in the short term. Long term achilles tendonitis will risk rupturing the achilles tendon. If symptoms persist, call us on 0481342837 to make an appointment.
Our chiropractor is specially trained to provide Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation(IASTM) to manage achilles tendonitis to achieve drug-free, effective and long lasting result. Patients with achilles tendonitis would also be gradually exposed to an exercise program aimed at strengthening the region involved.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, please do not hesitate to come in for an examination at Spearwood Chiropractic.
