You may have seen a player getting escorted off the field at a sporting event due to an injury. If the injury was a torn Achilles tendon, you know how bad it can be. That athlete is most likely being taken to surgery to repair the tear. He won’t be playing for months while it heals. If you’re active and begin to feel pain in the back of your ankle, visit Dr. Velimir Petkov foot doctor Clifton, New Jersey for Achilles tendonitis treatment. Your podiatrist can begin a program of rehabilitation. If you have pain, see a foot doctor before you get carted off on a stretcher in extreme pain. Call Clifton, NJ podiatrist’s office for an appointment, even on short notice.
What is Achilles Tendonitis?
The Achilles tendon is the strong band of tissue that connects your calf muscles to your heel. Tendonitis occurs from overuse. Runners who suddenly increase the intensity of their runs are at a particular risk of developing Achilles tendonitis. Middle-aged athletes who only work out on the weekends may be at risk of injuring the tendon.
Tendonitis is painful and mobility-limiting. You can treat your pain with conservative lifestyle treatments and over-the-counter medication. Your Northern New Jersey podiatrist at Premier Podiatry provides you with a set of exercises, stretches, and other modification recommendations that help you heal your tendonitis.
