Achilles Tendonitis Services
The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the body and connects the calf muscle with the heel bone. Achilles tendonitis is a condition caused by acute and chronic inflammation of the tendon, resulting in pain, swelling, stiffness, and tenderness of the lower leg, especially during the flexing of the calf muscle.
There are multiple causes for Achilles tendonitis. It generally presents due to overuse and as a stress response of the tendon. Suddenly starting an exercise program, increasing in the intensity or amount of exercise, tightness or weakness of the calf muscles or structural change around the heel bone are some common causes
Treatments for Achilles Tendonitis
Achilles tendonitis treatment can be done without any surgery. Given below are some such non-invasive equipment and methods:
Heel lifts are shoe inserts under the heel, usually made of high-density EVA material. It keeps your heel elevated, reducing the stress on the Achilles tendon and preventing it from being flexed too far.
Foot orthotics are shoe inserts that are specifically designed for your feet. They can provide everyday relief from Achilles tendonitis. It changes how the force from the ground applies on the foot as well as how you apply force on the ground when you stand or move. Moreover, it also helps change your gait in a healthy way. At Momentum we use 3D imaging to create perfectly modelled orthotics for your feet.
Shockwave therapy is a supportive Achilles tendonitis treatment. By directing acoustic waves from the outside of the body towards the affected part, soft tissue growth healing is stimulated while relieving pain by suppressing the pain receptors in the area.
Physiotherapy and rehabilitation exercises are some of the most commonly prescribed Achilles tendonitis treatments. They mostly include heel and calf raises, holds, and stretches. These exercises provide both short and long-term relief from the condition.
