Achilles Tendonitis Relief at Austin Chiropractic & Acupuncture Clinic

Achilles tendonitis, a common yet painful condition affecting the Achilles tendon, can significantly impact mobility and quality of life. At Austin Chiropractic & Acupuncture Clinic, led by Dr. Justin Swanson in Austin, TX, we offer an innovative and effective alternative to traditional treatments for Achilles tendonitis pain: SoftWave Therapy.

Understanding Achilles Tendonitis

The Achilles tendon, the largest and strongest tendon in the body, connects the calf muscles to the heel bone. It's essential for walking, running, and jumping. Inflammation of this tendon, often due to overuse or strain, leads to Achilles tendonitis.

Causes and Risk Factors

  • Overuse: Excessive physical activities without proper rest can lead to tendonitis.
  • Sudden Activity Increase: A rapid increase in activity levels can strain the tendon.
  • Improper Footwear: Shoes that don't fit well or provide inadequate support can contribute to tendon issues.
  • Age: Tendon degeneration is more common as we age.

Common symptoms include pain and stiffness in the heel, swelling, and difficulty walking or rising on the toes.

Traditional Treatment Approaches

Typical treatments include rest, activity modification, icing, physical therapy, and sometimes medications or corticosteroid injections. In severe cases, surgery might be considered, but it involves risks and a long recovery period.
