What is Achilles tendinopathy?

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.

What are the Symptoms of Achilles tendinopathy?

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.
