Achilles Tendinitis Explained

Understanding Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles tendinitis is one of the most common overuse injuries affecting the lower leg, specifically the tendon that runs from the calf muscles to the heel. This condition can be particularly frustrating as it affects mobility and can lead to long-term issues if not properly treated.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

Symptoms of Achilles tendinitis include:

  • Pain and swelling near the heel
  • Increased pain after running or other sports activity
  • Stiffness that generally decreases as the tendon warms up with use
  • Tenderness on the tendon or severe pain the day after exercising

Diagnosis typically involves a physical exam with tests to assess the flexibility, alignment, and reflexes of the foot and ankle. Imaging tests, such as ultrasound or MRI, might be used to rule out other conditions.

Causes and Risk Factors

The main cause of Achilles tendinitis is repetitive stress to the tendon, making it common among athletes, particularly runners. Other causes include:

  • Sudden increase in the amount or intensity of exercise activity
  • Poorly fitting shoes or shoes that do not provide proper support
  • Running on hard or uneven surfaces
  • High arches or flat feet

Treatment and Management

Effective treatment for Achilles tendinitis involves several strategies:

  • Rest and Ice: Crucial for reducing inflammation and pain.
  • Elevation: To help reduce swelling.
  • Pain Relief Medications: Such as NSAIDs to manage pain and reduce inflammation.
  • Physical Therapy: Includes exercises to strengthen the calf muscles and Achilles tendon.
  • Sports Massage: Helps improve circulation, reduce tension in the calf muscles, and promote flexibility.
  • Orthotic Devices: Custom shoe inserts prescribed to correct foot imbalances.

Prevention

Preventive measures include:

  • Properly warming up and stretching before exercise
  • Increasing exercise intensity gradually
  • Wearing appropriate footwear that provides adequate cushioning and support
  • Strengthening exercises for the calf muscles

Understanding Achilles tendinitis and adopting a comprehensive treatment and prevention plan can help individuals return to their activities with minimal risk of recurrence.
