Achilles Pain

We understand that Achilles pain can be a major source of discomfort, frustration, and limitation. That’s why we’re dedicated to providing high-quality advice and support to help you overcome your pain and regain your mobility and quality of life.

Achilles pain refers to discomfort or pain in the Achilles tendon, which is the largest tendon in the human body that connects the calf muscles to the heel bone. The Achilles tendon plays a vital role in enabling us to walk, run, jump, and stand on our tiptoes.

Achilles pain can be caused by various factors, including overuse, sudden or repetitive stress, inadequate footwear, or a sudden increase in activity level. It can also be caused by biomechanical issues such as flat feet, high arches, or muscle imbalances that can place additional strain on the tendon.

In some cases, Achilles pain can be the result of an injury or trauma to the tendon, such as a tear or rupture. Age can also play a role, as the tendon can become less flexible and more prone to injury as we get older.

Individuals who engage in activities that involve repetitive motions, such as running or jumping, are at an increased risk of developing Achilles pain. Additionally, individuals who have tight or weak calf muscles, or who have experienced previous foot or ankle injuries, may also be more susceptible to Achilles pain.

If you are experiencing Achilles pain, it is important to seek professional medical advice to determine the underlying cause of your symptoms and develop an appropriate treatment plan. Early intervention can help prevent the condition from worsening and allow for a quicker recovery.

Our team of biomechanics consultants has extensive experience working with individuals who suffer from Achilles pain. We use advanced diagnostic tools and techniques to analyse your foot mechanics, gait, and posture, in order to identify the root cause of your pain and discomfort.

Based on our analysis, we develop personalized treatment plans that are tailored to your specific needs and circumstances. These may include recommendations for exercises, stretches, or strengthening programs to help alleviate your pain and improve your mobility. We may also recommend orthotic insoles or footwear modifications to provide additional support and cushioning for your feet and Achilles tendon.
