Achilles tendinopathy is a common inflammation of the large tendon located at the back of the ankle and heel. It causes acute pain, especially when engaging in activities that put strain on the area such as running or jumping. When left unmanaged, it can lead to further chronic issues resulting in more significant impacts on daily life including difficulty walking. If you’re experiencing some level of Achilles discomfort, consider seeking a chiropractor, massage therapist or physiotherapist for tailored treatments and exercises.

Achilles tendinopathy is a condition involving prolonged pain and discomfort in the Achilles tendon, which connects the muscles in your calf to your heel bone. One of the most common symptoms includes pain that gradually increases over time, making activities involving the Achilles tendon more difficult. Other warning signs include stiffness upon rising in the morning, warmth around the affected area, and reduced mobility. If left untreated, Achilles tendinopathy can lead to a partial tear or complete rupture he tendon. To help manage these symptoms and reduce the risk of further damage, chiropractic treatment, physiotherapy exercises, and massage can be beneficial. Consulting with a chiropractor can help assess your condition and develop a personalized plan that suits your needs best.

Achilles tendinopathy can be treated with a variety of methods and techniques. One option is chiropractic care. A chiropractor may use techniques such as articulation or mobilization to help reduce inflammation while also increasing range of motion in the affected area. Physiotherapy is another treatment option, aimed at alleviating symptoms and improving function through active stretching and strengthening assessments. Finally, massage can help relieve pain and tension around the Achilles tendon, allowing you to enjoy activities such as walking or running again without worry.

Regardless of the type of tendinopathy, chiropractic, physiotherapy or massage can contribute to your recovery plan. Chiropractic care focuses on joint problems which may arise from both conditions. Physiotherapists on the other hand focus on helping individuals rehabilitate from soft-tissue injuries such as strains, sprains, and tears.

Achilles injuries are a type of tendon injury that affect a person’s Achilles tendon, a thick band of tissue connecting the calf muscles to the heel bone. Common Achilles injuries include Achilles tendinopathy, a condition characterized by inflammation of the Achilles tendon; Achilles tears, a rupturing or tearing of the Achilles tendon; and Achillobursitis, an irritation and swelling in the area where the Achilles connects to the foot. These types of injuries can be very painful and limit one’s ability to move without discomfort. Furthermore, they can take a long time to heal properly if they are not treated quickly and effectively. It is important that individuals pay attention to any warning signs their body may provide when it comes to preventing such common Achilles injuries.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
