Achilles Tendonitis

{lang: 'en-GB'}


What is Achilles Tendonitis?

Achilles tendonitis affects the large tendon that attaches to the heel bone of the foot.  This tendon can become inflamed and tender to touch if overused, as in activities that involve running and jumping, or any intense exercise.  It can also develop if the arches of the foot have become reduced in height (flat foot).  Symptoms may be felt whilst exercising but is more common to feel the pain the morning after exercise.

How can Orthotics resolve Achilles Tendonitis?

Our prescription orthotics will support the arches of the feet and by doing so allow the Achilles tendon to travel freely and not rub on its protective sheath, causing friction and inflammation. They may also include a slight heel lift to remove some of the tension on the Achilles tendon.  This will allow the tendon to heal itself and prevent the inflammation from reoccurring.
