Achilles Tendonitis 

Achilles Tendonitis involves inflammation of the Achilles tendon, while actual degenaration of the tendon is referred to as Achilles Tendonosis. Injuries to the Achilles are among the more common and difficult to treat.

The Achilles tendon is located at the back of the heel and inserts into the rear portion of the heel bone. It is surrounded by a vascular sheath which provides the tendon fibers with its blood supply.

The Achilles tendon must be properly preconditioned to withstand sudden stretches and the strain of body weight during activity. If chronic tendonosis is ignored the tendon becomes likely to rupture when the cells that repair the tendon (tenocytes) cannot work quickly enough to heal the damage done by the overenthusiastic athlete.

Injury Levels:

  • Stage 1
    • Burning or prickly pain in the Achilles about 1" to 3" above the heel bone
    • Results from inflammation to the vascular sheath
    • May simply be due to shoe irritation.
  • Stage 2
    • Sharp shooting or piercing sensation occurring during activity, especially when changing direction or running uphill
    • Achilles has begun to deteriorate (tendinosis)
  •  Stage 3
    • Tendon has or is near snap or rupture
    • significant  swelling
    •  Collagen protein fibers in the Achilles weakened and broken.

Causation:

  • Sudden overstretching of tendon fibers.
  • Overpronation straining the soleus tendon.
  • Oversupination or high arches straining the gastrocnemius fibers in the calf.
  • Constant rubbing of the shoe against the tendon.
  • Improper warm-up.
  • Direct trauma.
  • Sudden dramatic increase in activity or intensity of activity.
  • Heel bone deformity.
  • High-mileage, long-term running program without sufficient rest.

Short Term Treatment:

  • Decrease mileage and intensity for 7 - 10 days.
  • Avoid hills during recovery.
  • Ice treatment after running.
  • Flexibility program concentrating on the soleus and gastrocnemius, including stretching and heel lifts.
  • Treat with anti-inflammatory pain medicines as Ibuprofen
  • Orthotics and proper shoe selection.
  • Taping.
  • If persisting for more than two weeks, see a physician.

Long Term Treatment:

  • Continuous flexibility program.
  • Orthotics.
  • Professional treatment by a physician.

 For overall prevention, be aware of shoe deterioration and purchase shoes designed to correct any stride problems such as overpronation or oversupination.
