Here Is Everything You Need To Know About
Achilles Tendonitis

How does it feel?

  • Pain
  • Throbbing
  • Stiffness
  • Weakness
  • Tender to palpation

Signs and Symptoms

  • Tenderness in the heel or higher up in the Achilles tendon with manually applied pressure
  • Pain and stiffness with walking, at its worst with the first several steps
  • Tightness in the calf
  • Swelling in the back of the ankle

Diagnosis

  • We conduct a thorough examination including the back, hips, knee, and ankle/foot. We determine the root cause of your symptoms to ensure that physical therapy treatment is the best option for you.
  • We examine posture, range of motion, strength, reflexes, sensation, soft tissue mobility, joint mobility, nerve mobility, and functional movements to create a custom treatment plan. We also take into account any imaging that you have had like X-Rays, MRI, CT scans, etc.

Can Physical Therapy Help?

  • Yes!!! Recent onset of symptoms typically results in a quicker recovery time of about 1-2 months depending of the grade of the sprain. Whereas persistent symptoms that have lasted longer than 6 months, usually takes 2-6 months to recover.
  • Good news!! Recent research has actually shown that physical therapy is a better option than surgery, pain medication and injections. We can help you avoid unnecessary invasive procedures and tests that cost a fortune with limited effectiveness.
