Are you suffering from achilles tendon pain?

Achilles tendon pain | Healthy Life Foot Clinic

Does this sound like you – “My achilles feels really tight & aches a lot. The tendon actual feels a little swollen. I get up in the morning & can’t put my heel on the ground. I feel so tight I’m worried it might snap. The more activity I do the worse it is & I’ve had to stop walking & running.”

Pain around the ankle & achilles tendon is very common but can really limit your activity levels. There are 2 locations for achilles tendon pain – in the middle of your tendon or where the tendon attaches to the heel bone. Each location of pain needs to be treated quite differently hence getting an accurate diagnosis is crucial.

Because of the importance of getting the right diagnosis & then treatment plan, call our clinic to make an appointment or book online by clicking the “Make an Appointment” button.

What to expect at your consultation

When you see one of our Podiatrist’s at Healthy Life Foot Clinic, you’ll not only feel welcomed but confident in their care.

We’ll initially take the time to learn about you and your problem and how it’s affected you and what it’s stopping you from doing. We will then take a thorough history and perform a detailed examination to determine what’s wrong and the cause of your problem.

Part of the examination will involve observation of your walking which may also include the use of video or Gaitscan (this measures the pressure applied under your feet). We may also refer you for further xrays or ultrasound if indicated.

Finally, we will give you a plan which will clearly detail what the problem is, why it’s there and what we will do to get you back to doing what you love as quickly as possible. Treatment will vary according to your problem but may include a combination of hands on therapy (foot mobilisation and dry needling), strapping, exercise, footwear advice, laser, orthotic therapy and general foot care.
