Achilles Tendon Injuries

This is a common sports injury that can occur gradually over time or more quickly due to an increase in activity levels. Symptoms are often a lump that can be felt within the tendon at the back of the ankle which is usually painful to squeeze.

If biomechanical abnormalities have contributed to the onset of Achilles tendinopathy, orthotics (special insoles) can help by changing the way the foot functions. Acupuncture treatment may also reduce pain and encourage healing. A programme of progressive exercises will be recommended to gradually encourage the tendon to work and load correctly following the injury.
