Achilles Tendinopathy

Achilles tendinopathy is an injury of the achilles tendon. Achilles tendon is the thick band of tissue on the back of the lower leg that connects the calf muscles to the heel. Achilles tendon pain is felt in the heel and up the back of the ankle when walking and running. Achilles tendinopathy often occurs after an injury, incident or repetitive movements. Runners and athletes develop achilles tendon pain due to repetitive trauma to the tendon. 


Achilles tendinopathy may occur due to:


Achilles tendinopathy symptoms may include:


Post operative rehabilitation can help repair the achilles tendon rupture. Post operative rehab includes physical therapy to help regain strength and flexibility in the tendon and leg. Physical therapy helps to reduce the pain, stiffness and swelling. Time and energy is important during your rehabilitation program to help speed up your recovery and help prevent further injuries. 


A physical therapist can work with you before or after a surgical procedure to help regain range of motion, strength and function. Physical therapy can provide education, instruction and support for recovery. At Reddy Care Physical, Occupational and Aquatic Therapy, your physical therapist will examine your foot, ankle and heel. Your physical therapist will assess your foot flexibility, strength, posture, and movement. The evaluation process will help your physical therapist provide you with a unique treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.


Your treatment plan may include a range of motion exercises, flexibility exercises, muscle strengthening, balance and proprioception, aerobic conditioning, education, pain management, manual therapy, heat and ice application, ultrasound therapy and myofascial release.
