Achilles Tendinosis(Tendinitis)/Heel Pain

achillesThe Achilles tendon is located at the back of the leg and inserts into the heel bone. Onset of pain can be sudden or gradual. Treatment should be started early, as the tendon can degenerate or “break-down” causing weakness and the possibility of rupture. This injury can be difficult to treat because it is hard to rest the area.

Custom foot orthotics are an excellent tool to rest the area and align the foot with the leg.
