Achilles Tendinopathy

Achilles Tendinopathy is commonly known as Achilles Tendonitis. Achilles Tendinosis is a breakdown in the Achilles Tendon, with small, focal lesions within the tendon without an inflammatory response. This degeneration means that the Achilles tendon does not possess its normal strength and may be liable to rupture with continued sporting activity.

The key to recovering from Achilles Tendinopathy is in trying to elicit healing without overloading the tendon. Research has suggested that recovery is optimised by using a very gradually progressed eccentric strengthening program for the Achilles tendon and Calf muscles under the supervision of a physiotherapist. These exercises cause the Achilles Tendon to adapt and get stronger.

Mrs Wainwright
"I've never know pain like Sciatica. Following a referral made by my doctor, I was seen by a really friendly physiotherapist. I can't believe the difference in 4 sessions - Many thanks."
Miss C White
"I was told by a previous physio that nothing could be done for my ankle problem and I would never play football again. Having received expert treatment and by following a specific programme, I have returned to 5-a-side once a week."
