Fornham — Achilles Tendonitis
The Achilles tendon attaches your calf muscles to your heel bone. Every time you walk, run or jump this tendon stretches and contracts, meaning that the Achilles is a part of the body put under constant strain.
Intense and continuous physical activity like running can result in painful inflammation of the Achilles over time due to the repeated stretching-and-contracting action. This inflammation is what’s known as Achilles tendonitis.
The team at Fornham Chiropractic are experienced at treating Achilles Tendonitis and many other problems of the foot or lower leg.
Who suffers from Achilles tendonitis?
Achilles tendonitis often afflicts those who start running without properly warming up, or have a sudden increase in physical activity levels without building up slowly to allow the body to adjust. Symptoms of Achilles tendonitis include tight calf muscles, a reduced range of motion and an abnormally hot heel. IN some cases the back of the heel itself may even begin to swell.
This is one of the most common forms of foot pain, and one of the main complaints we deal with at Fornham Chiropractic Clinic.
