Achilles tendon shortening

An Achilles tendon shortening can result in severe mobility limitations. Here you can experience hindrance during sports, but also in everyday life. It can even become so bad that it makes walking impossible. Do you recognize this complaint? Then read the causes and symptoms of the Achilles tendon shortening.

What is an Achilles tendon shortening?

With an Achilles tendon shortening, the Achilles tendon does not have the correct length with respect to the calf muscle and the heel bone. The Achilles tendon is shorter than usual. This allows the foot to hang slightly downwards. It takes quite some effort to move the foot up (dorsiflexion). The maximum dorsiflexion movement will not be as large as usual. As a result, this implies that the foot is obstructed in the power delivery, less force / force can be delivered while walking and running. The person will also walk and run more on his toes.

Cause abbreviated Achilles tendon

A shortened Achilles tendon can have multiple causes. Often a shortened Achilles tendon grows. The body grows faster than the Achilles tendon does.

A person can also be born with a shortened tendon.


  • Instability in the foot
  • An increased callus under the foot.
  • Pain in the foot

Recovery, possibly with the help of an ankle brace?

To extend the Achilles tendon you can think of an operation. It is also possible to passively stretch the tendon and the calf muscle. The products below mobilize your joint and stretch the Achilles tendon and calf muscles to the maximum, to increase the mobility of your joint.

  1. To prevent a lot of stretching on the tendon throughout the day & you do not necessarily have to walk all day long, ProBrace offers silicone heels

It is also possible to have the tendon stretched at night. This can be done passively with a night splint.
