    What Exactly is Achilles Tendonitis?

    The Achilles tendon is the largest and strongest tendon in your body. Tendonitis is a condition characterized by inflammation of a tendon. Achilles tendonitis typically occurs with overuse of the tendon, increases in activity, and repetitive strain on the tendon. Tendonitis is a condition characterized by inflammation to a tendon.


    You may feel pain, swelling, discomfort and stiffness on the back of your foot or leg. It is very common in runners, athletes, and those who work on their feet. If you have equinus, you may be more prone to developing tendonitis. You may also be predisposed given your age, foot structure, activity level, medical conditions, and medications you are taking.


    Diagnosis typically starts with a thorough clinical evaluation and standard X-rays. Advanced imaging studies such as an MRI scan are sometimes recommended to better understand the severity of your condition.


    A wide array of treatment options is available for Achilles tendonitis, from simple treatments like rest, ice and over-the-counter pain relievers, to more advanced treatments such as physical therapy, orthotic devices, medications and, in severe cases, surgery.

    It’s important to consult a podiatry expert, such as Dr. Jason Spector, to treat this condition promptly. Delay in treatment can lead to more severe injuries, as it can become progressively worsen and make you predisposed to having tendinosis (degeneration of the tendon) or an Achilles Rupture. Trust our team at Florida Foot and Ankle Specialists to provide the highest level of care, helping you return to your normal activities as quickly and safely as possible.
