Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles Tendinitis is a painful condition affecting the Achilles Tendon (attaches the calf muscle to the heel bone), causing heel pain, tenderness, stiffness or swelling. The injury is commonly caused by overuse of the Achilles Tendon in athletes participating in sport that involves high impact activities like jumping and running.

Foot problems like flat feet, unsupportive footwear and obesity are common non-sport related causes of Achilles Tendinitis. Unfortunately, recovery from Achilles Tendinitis can be slow and depends on the severity of the condition. Consulting a doctor will ensure the best advice in how to heal Achilles Tendinitis.

Bodyassist’s range of supportive footwear products may alleviate discomfort and provide additional support and compression to assist with swift recovery from injury.
