Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles tendinitis

Achilles tendinitis is a painful condition where too much inflammation around the Achilles tendon causes pain and swelling along the back of the heel. There are two main types of Achilles tendinitis; insertional Achilles tendinitis and non-insertional Achilles tendinitis. Depending on the specific location of the Achilles tendinitis different treatments may be required.

While we encourage you to attempt conservative care at home, delayed care will reduce the efficacy of conservative care. Do not continue to suffer from heel pain, call today to schedule your consultation to meet with a foot and ankle specialist at Central Florida Bone and Joint Institute.
