Achilles tendon tendinopathy, what is it?

Achilles tendinopathy is literally translated an inflammation in the Achilles tendon. In Achilles tendinopathy, the quality and structure of the tendon may be reduced, often due to overload.
The complaints and pain can develop in different places within the tendon. For example, the tendon may be affected in the middle. Whether the tendon is affected at the heel bone, at the attachment with the bone.

Cause tendon Achilles tendon

Achilles tendinopathy often occurs with a much repeated and stressful force on the tendon. This occurs, for example, with excessive walking, jumping, running or running.
The complaint can also suddenly arise because a great force is placed on the Achilles tendon. This can happen due to an unexpected acceleration or a powerful take-off.

Symptoms of the inflamed Achilles tendon

  • Pain in the back of the lower leg.
  • Standing on tiptoes hurts
  • Jumping will be painful
  • Applying pressure to the Achilles tendon (with the fingers, for example) can be painful.

Diagnosis and treatment of Achilles tendon injury

The main thing is to identify the cause of the problem. If you know how the complaints come about, the problem can be treated. Make sure to temporarily reduce the load and activity on the Achilles tendon. Call ProBrace for physiological advice or visit a physiotherapist in your area. He will give exercises to strengthen the muscles.
Products have also been developed specifically for Achilles tendon problems. Think about:

  1. A heel raise with a silicone insole . The silicone inlay sole feels comfortable during walking during the day. The complaints are taken away while walking, but it does not solve the problem.

In order to completely solve the problem, it is important that the muscles recover well. Muscle recovery can be accelerated by stretching the muscles during the day. As a result, the muscles will grow and recover in the correct length direction. Stretching the Achilles tendon therefore improves recovery of the Achilles tendon.

A night splint can be chosen for stretching the muscles. The night splint will be worn during the night, when the tendon has rest and time to recover.

  1. Heel Spur Night Splint
  2. NOX compact night splint

Both night splints have been scientifically used for Achilles tendon complaints!
