Restore Function & Mobility with Our Manhattan Ankle Specialist

new york city podiatrist for achilles tendinitisAchilles tendinitis is a condition characterized by pain in the Achilles tendon, which runs along the back of the leg near your heel. It is generally caused by excess strain or overuse of the Achilles tendon. If you believe that you or a loved one has injured your Achilles tendon, call Silverstone Podiatry and schedule an appointment with our 5-star-rated New York City podiatrist for Achilles tendinitis.

What Is The Achilles Tendon?

The Achilles tendon connects the calf to the heel bone. It can become tight if you don’t exercise frequently or it may be naturally tight due to genetic factors, putting you at risk for strain or sports injury. Injury to the Achilles tendon is very painful and is common in runners.

What Are the Symptoms of Achilles Tendinitis?

Patients suffering from Achilles tendinitis may experience some or all of the following symptoms…

  • Pain & swelling in your calf or heel
  • Tight calf muscles
  • Decreased range of motion in your leg or heel
  • Difficulty flexing your foot
  • Warmth or tenderness in your heel or foot

Treatment options include rest, ice, compression, and elevation of the affected foot. It’s important to stay off of the injured foot and be evaluated by our podiatrist as soon as possible. In some cases, surgical intervention may be necessary to relieve the pain and prevent the development of Achilles tendonosis, a degenerative condition where a chronically damaged, inflamed Achilles tendon becomes thick and scarred.

If you believe you have Achilles tendinitis or another Achilles tendon condition or injury, contact our office as soon as possible. We will perform a comprehensive diagnostic exam and discuss your recommended treatment options.
