The Achilles tendon is the largest and most powerful tendon in the human body. The Achilles tendon is located at the back of the lower leg. The tendon connects the calf muscle with the heel bone, the heel of the foot. Thanks to this tendon, we can push ourselves off when running, climbing stairs, jumping, etc.
An Achilles tendon tendonopathy is literally translated an inflammation in the Achilles tendon. In an Achilles tendon tendinopathy, the quality and structure of the tendon can be reduced, often by overloading.
The complaints and pain can take place in different places within the tendon. This way the tendon in the middle can be affected. Whether the tendon is affected at the heel bone, when attached to the bone.
Achilles tendon tendinopathy occurs in many cases 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 arise suddenly because there is a large force on the Achilles tendon. This can be done by unexpected acceleration or by strong sales.
The most important thing is to find the cause of the problem. If you know how the complaints come about, the problem can be dealt with. Be sure to temporarily reduce the load and activity on the Achilles tendon. Feel free to 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 that have been developed specifically for Achilles tendon problems. Think about:
To completely solve the problem, it is important that the muscles recover well. A recovery of the muscles can be accelerated by stretching the muscles during the day. This will allow the muscles to grow and recover in the correct longitudinal direction. Stretching the Achilles tendon therefore ensures a better recovery of the Achilles tendon.
For the stretching of the muscles you can opt for a night splint. The night splint will be worn in the night when the tendon has rest and time to recover.
