Achilles Tendonitis

Achilles tendon is the strongest tendon in the body. It is found in the back of the ankle, attached from the calf muscles to the heel bone. It is responsible for flexion of the knee and plantar flexion of the ankle joint for actions such as walking, running and jumping.

Achilles Tendonitis can be caused by repetitive strain, overuse, or sudden impact. It may also develop due to inadequate warm-up, improper footwear, or excessive running on hard surfaces. This condition is commonly seen in runners and athletes, but it can also affect non-athletes who engage in activities that stress the Achilles tendon.

  • Stiffness and swelling in the ankle
  • Cannot walk comfortably on the affected side
  • Limited ankle flexibility
  • Have ankle pain at night or while at rest for more than a few days
  • Develop symptoms of an infection such as fever, warmth, or redness

The treatment for Achilles Tendonitis can vary depending on the severity of the injury. Rest, ice, compression, elevation (RICE), physiotherapy and supportive footwear or braces can help to manage pain and swelling. Surgical intervention may be offered only in more severe cases to repair the ruptured tendon.

It is crucial to consult with a medical professional for advice promptly. A sports injury doctor can diagnose the condition and recommend the most appropriate treatment to help you recover as safely and quickly as possible. Contact Dr Dennis Ng now to create a comprehensive and effective treatment plan for your condition to get back on your feet and return to your daily activities.
