achilles tendinitis

get back to activity and get rid of pain

Are you a runner who has recently increased the intensity and duration of your runs? Are you middle-aged and enjoy playing sports on the weekends? If so, then you’re a candidate to suffer from Achilles tendinitis which is an overuse injury where the largest tendon in your body becomes irritated and inflamed. There are two types: Noninsertional Achilles Tendinitis and Insertional Achilles Tendinitis and they refer to where along the tendon the swelling and tenderness is felt. It is generally the result of increasing the demands of this durable tendon by increasing the amount of running, stair climbing, or jumping before the body has acclimated to the greater intensity.

* The number of sessions is based on previous client experiences. There are instances whenever pain may reside within 1 session, and there are instances when relief takes 5 or more sessions. A Prevention+ Plan is always recommended for injury prevention after you receive initial pain relief and resume activity. Results may vary per person. You will find continuous improvement long-term when coupled with at-home exercises.
