What Causes Achilles Tendonitis... And Why is Achilles Pain Not Getting Better?

Achilles tendonitis is a prevalent overuse injury that occurs due to repetitive stress on the Achilles tendon, which connects the calf muscle to the heel bone.

Symptoms of Achilles tendonitis include pain, tenderness, swelling, stiffness, and reduced range of motion in the back of the ankle.

This condition is most commonly observed in athletes, particularly runners, and often develops as a result of sudden increases in the intensity or duration of physical activity.

The Back in Motion Achilles Tendonitis Pain Relief Programme

Step 1 - Evaluation and Diagnosis

In the initial stage, a physiotherapist will assess your symptoms, medical history, and perform a physical examination, which may include a scan of the way you walk.

They can order diagnostic tests like imaging (such as MRI or ultrasound) to evaluate the severity of the condition, if required, and confirm the diagnosis of Achilles tendonitis.

Step 2 -  Conservative Treatment

The next stage typically involves non-surgical or conservative treatment options. This may include:

  • Rest and activity modification: Reducing or avoiding activities that aggravate the condition.

  • Shockwave Therapy: Radial pulse shockwaves are transmitted into the tissues to promote a faster healing response.

  • Exercise therapy: Stretching and strengthening exercises, as well as other modalities like ultrasound or laser therapy, to promote healing and improve tendon flexibility.

  • Orthotic devices: Using shoe inserts or custom orthotics to provide support and reduce strain on the Achilles tendon.

  • Heel lifts: Elevating the heel to relieve tension on the tendon.

How is Achilles tendonitis diagnosed?

Achilles tendonitis is usually diagnosed through a physical examination by a healthcare professional. They may also review your medical history and may order imaging tests, such as an ultrasound or MRI, to confirm the diagnosis and assess the extent of the injury.

What are the treatment options for Achilles tendonitis?

Treatment options for Achilles tendonitis may include:

Rest and activity modification: Limiting or avoiding activities that exacerbate the symptoms and giving the tendon time to heal.

Physical therapy: Specific exercises and stretches to strengthen the calf muscles, improve flexibility, and promote healing of the tendon.

Orthotic devices: The use of shoe inserts or heel lifts to provide support and reduce strain on the Achilles tendon.

Night splints: Wearing a splint at night to keep the foot in a neutral position, which helps stretch the calf muscles and relieve morning stiffness.
