Customized Insoles For Achilles Tendonitis

In the fast-paced world of today, diseases continue to take a toll on the way we resume our lifestyle every day.

Achilles tendonitis is one such condition.

It basically occurs because of the inflammation and irritation of the largest tendon that runs down the back of the lower part of the leg. The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon present in the body. It serves its purpose of connecting the calf muscles to the heel bone.

It also assists us while performing various activities like running, jumping, walking, standing on toes, climbing and so on. A sufficiently huge amount of stress can be withstood by the Achilles tendon while running, jumping or standing, but the occurrence of tendonitis is possibly related to the overuse and degeneration of tendons.

The pain associated with Achilles tendonitis occurs at the point where the tendon is connected to the heel bone and sometimes within the tendon itself. This inflammation of the tendon causes swelling, pain, irritation, and inflammation.

Categorized mainly into two types as non-insertional Achilles tendonitis and insertional Achilles tendonitis, this disorder usually affects the proportion of the population consisting of younger and active people.

Hardening or calcification of tendons occurs both in non-insertional as well as insertional Achilles tendonitis. Extra bone growth is a common phenomenon due to this condition.   

what causes Achilles Tendonitis

Repetitive stress on the tendon is one of the major causes of occurrence of Achilles tendonitis. Often found to happen after pushing your bodies too much to work tediously, there are a number of possible causes which make this defect grow stealthily, some of which we discuss below:

  • Suddenly increasing the intensity of physical activity to be performed by the body that mostly consists of running and exercises. The case when you allow your body to run a few extra miles without adjusting to the current routine
  • The tightness of the calf muscles is another crucial reason for the occurrence of this disorder where suddenly splurging on an aggressive exercise program can ultimately lead to putting extra stress on the Achilles tendon.
  • A condition of bone spurs or extra bone growth where the Achilles tendon is connected to the heel bone and can result in causing sensations of pain when rubbed against the tendon.

What Are The Symptoms Of Achilles Tendonitis?

There are a number of symptoms which are the root indicators of Achilles tendonitis. We summarize them below:

  • Stiffness and pain sensations along the Achilles tendon at any time of the day, particularly morning.

  • Excessive pain, especially during exercising
  • Conditions of tendon thickening
  • Swelling and pain near the Achilles tendon
  • Thickening of the tendon
  • A suddenly offensive pain in the back of the heel or tendon
  • Swelling after performing some physical activity
There is also a scenario where you experience popping of a certain substance in the back of your calf or heel. This possibly means that your Achilles tendon got ruptured. In that case, it is highly advised to visit the doctor as you may have torn your tendon unknowingly.
