Achilles Tendinitis

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Achilles tendinitis is qualified as an "overuse injury" of the Achilles tendon, which is the band of tissue that connects the calf muscle at the back of the lower leg to the heel bone. Achilles tendinitis most regularly occurs in runners and middle-aged adults who participate in recreational sporting activities. Symptoms of achilles tendinitis usually begin with a mild ache in the back of the leg after a period of activity. Many people suffer from episodes of more severe pain after prolonged use.

The physicians at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians will give each patient who complains of achilles pain a physical exam to determine the exact location of pain and tenderness. We will also evaluate the flexibility, alignment, and range of motion of the foot and ankle to determine the extent of injury. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are devoted to using the most advanced and minimally invasive treatment methods to help patients who suffer from achilles tendinitis. We don't want to just treat the symptoms. We are here to help our patients find long term relief from the pain associated with achilles tendinitis so that they can return to their active lifestyles.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians focuses on relieving the pain that our patients are undergoing, improving the function of their ankle, and preventing symptoms and injury from reoccurring in the future. Our physicians work one on one with each of our patients in order to provide them with the best, most personal treatment plan that they need.

You do not have to live with the pain and discomfort of your achilles tendinitis, and they do not need to keep you from the active lifestyle that you enjoy. Contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians to schedule an appointment for consultation with one of our physicians. Our goal is to help you stay healthy and active so that you can 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.

Keep Your Hips Healthy

Every year, tens of thousands of people undergo hip replacement surgery. One of the major reasons is the wearing down of the hip joint. This is most often due to the effects of osteoarthritis; however, other health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, bone tumors and avascular necrosis – a condition that causes loss of bone due to insufficient blood supply – can also lead to problems with the hip joint. Keeping your hips in healthy condition can help you avoid this surgery.
