Achilles Tendon Pain

Pain in the Calf muscle or the Achilles Tendon, whether above the heel or as it inserts into the heel bone itself, can be an extremely painful and limiting condition. Acute flares can be due to doing too much too soon after a period of inactivity.

Chronic tendon degeneration can occur for a number of reasons. This is one of the most common conditions we treat and our team have helped many people overcome their Achilles Tendon and Calf muscle problems.

Helping You With Your Achilles Tendon Pain 

Shockwave Therapy

Most Chronic forms of Achilles/Calf pain are often helped with Radial Shockwave Therapy. Our Podiatry team will advise you on whether or not this treatment may be appropriate. This treatment is not a panacea, but over the years we have had great results when we use this treatment appropriately. Shockwave Therapy is often used for residual pain relief following mechanical therapies.

Foot Orthoses

There are a number of factors that can contribute to Achilles pain including: Training error, Load Management and foot function issues such as Flat Feet or High Arches.

Alignment of the feet and reinforcement of structure and correct function is paramount to sucessful treatment. Correct footwear and activity choices are also key to recovery.
