Symptoms of Achilles Tendinitis

If you need help dealing with the symptoms of Achilles tendinitis, you can turn to the caring team at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. Achilles tendinitis is an overuse injury of the Achilles tendon, the band of tissue that connects the calf muscles at the back of the lower leg to the heel bone. Symptoms include pain, tenderness and stiffness in the back of the leg or above the heel. In many cases, the pain and stiffness are worse in the morning and then decrease with mild activity. However, the pain may worsen after prolonged running, sprinting or stair climbing. For some, the pain and symptoms of Achilles tendinitis are mild while in others, they can be debilitating.

Our Achilles tendinitis treatment plans are focused on relieving the current symptoms, improving function and preventing symptoms from reoccurring in the future. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians offers a lower patient-to-provider ratio than many other sports and orthopedic practices. This enables us to give each and every one of our valued patients the time and attention they deserve. Before recommending any type of treatment plan, our physicians will take the time to conduct a thorough family and medical history, discuss your symptoms and goals for treatment, conduct a thorough physical examination and order any diagnostic tests that are needed. Once we have accurately pinpointed the source of your pain, we can recommend a customized treatment plant that tailored to your individual needs and goals.

Causes of Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles tendinitis is caused by repetitive or intense strain on the Achilles tendon. Walking, running, jumping or pulling up on your toes can cause this type of strain. With age, we become more susceptible to Achilles tendinitis. That is why this condition often occurs in runners and in middle-aged individuals who participate in sports such as tennis or basketball, only on the weekends.

You do not have to live with the pain and other symptoms associated with Achilles tendinitis. If you have persistent pain around your Achilles tendon, please contact the Achilles Tendinitis Treatment Specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians to schedule a consultation with one of our chronic pain physicians. For your convenience, our office accepts many different insurance plans as well as several other forms of payment. We look forward to helping you stay active and live your best life!

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
