Achilles Tendonitis is inflammation of the tendon that connects the calf muscle to the ankle. This occurs due to increase stress and strain on the tendon. The calf muscles control Dorsi flexion (foot pointing down) and pronation (foot rolling in). Previous research has shown that about 25% of athletes that suffer from chronic tendonitis resulted in surgery and that more conservative methods of treatment were less effective.
At Perth cbd chiropractic clinic (formally central city chiropractors) we correct the whole of the kinetic chain, The therapist will ensure that no imbalances are coming from pelvis, hip, knee, or foot, to ensure that there is minimum stress on the tendon to allow it to heal. We can use a number of different techniques to help improve the inflammation.
