Achilles Tendinitis

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Atlanta Achilles Tendinitis TreatmentThe Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in a person's body. It connects the calf muscle to the heel bone, and it is used for any movement of the leg: walking, running, jumping, dancing, etc. The Achilles tendon was designed to withstand great stresses from an active lifestyle; however, it is also prone to tendinitis. Tendinitis is the inflammation of a tendon as the body's natural response to injury or disease, and it often causes swelling, pain, or irritation. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are Atlanta's premier provider of expert Achilles Tendinitis treatment. Whether you are a professional athlete or a recreational enthusiast, we can help patients find relief from their Achilles pain so that they can return to an active and healthy lifestyle.

The doctors at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians specialize in the most advanced and minimally invasive treatment methods to treat patients who are suffering from Achilles tendinitis. For many, rest, ice, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, along with specific exercises can be enough to provide pain relief from Achilles tendinitis. While this treatment method can be successful, it can also take months for symptoms to fully subside. Our physicians understand that not everyone has months to recover, which is why we offer a variety of different options for our patients. We work with each patient on an individual basis to provide the most customized and specific treatment method possible.

If you are suffering from Achilles tendinitis, you do not have to live with the pain. Contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors. Our goal in all of our treatment options is to help you stay active and live your best life.

A Little Known Muscle We Know As the Psoas

There is a little known muscle known as the psoas. You pronounce it “SO-as.” It’s surprising how so few people have ever heard of this muscle due to the fact that it is so vital to all movements. Almost all activities and sports that you participate in require the recruitment of your psoas muscles.
