What is Achilles Pain?

Achilles pain, or Achilles Tendinopathy, is pain in your Achilles tendon that runs down the back of your lower leg to your heel. This often results in inflammation and can take a long time to heal, because we don’t give the tendon adequate rest.

Causes of Achilles Pain.

There are different reasons why you may be getting Achilles pain, and the following is a list of the most common examples.

Tendonitis is when a tendon swells (becomes inflamed) after a tendon injury.

It can cause joint pain, stiffness, and affect how a tendon moves.

In more serious cases, the damage may be to the extent of the fibrous cord rupturing either partially or completely.

A general pain if you haven’t moved around for a while. 

If you have had pain for more than two weeks, you should see a professional for an assessment and diagnosis of your issues.

How we can help.

For these types of conditions, there hasn’t been any footwear dedicated to treating them until recently; except in the case for not wearing shoes that are completely flat. Recently, certain brands have addressed this issue, by introducing dedicated lines aimed at reducing the effects caused by Achilles pain.

For those who have more underlying problems and need extra support, we are available to discuss this and can offer alternatives or combinations (e.g. footwear and an orthotic).

In severe cases, we may be able to refer you to a specialist clinic, where you can be seen in person.
