Achilles Tendonitis and Heel Pain: Treatment Options in Glendale, CA

The Achilles Tendon is a band of tissue that connects the calf muscles to the heel bone. It’s responsible for the “push-off” power you experience when walking or running. When it’s overused or strained, patients suffer from what is known as Achilles Tendonitis; injury to the Achilles Tendon. It’s most common in runners who overexert themselves suddenly, as well as other sportsmen such as tennis or basketball players.

Regardless of the cause, the symptoms are typically similar. It starts with pain and stiffness at the back of your ankle. Sometimes the pain worsens gradually, but in many cases its worst first thing in the morning. You get acute or chronic forms, both of which can cause far bigger problems if left untreated. The biggest complication involves the tendon becoming too weak and vulnerable, causing it to tear or rupture. This is painful, and normally requires surgery.
