Achilles tendinitis occurs when the tendon that connects the back of leg to heel becomes swollen and painful near the bottom of the foot. This tendon is called the Achilles tendon. It is used for walking, running and jumping. There are two large muscles in the calf. These muscles are important for walking. They create the power needed to push off with the foot or go up on the toes. The large Achilles tendon connects these muscles to the heel.
Achilles tendinitis due to overuse is most common in younger people. It can occur in walkers, runners or other athletes. Achilles tendinitis may be more likely to occur when there is sudden increase in the amount or intensity of an activity, your calf muscles are very tight (not stretched out), you run on hard surfaces such as concrete, you run too often, you jump a lot (such as when playing basketball), you do not have shoes with proper support or your foot suddenly turns in or out.
Tendinitis from arthritis is more common in middle-aged and elderly people. A bone spur or growth may form in the back of the heel bone. This may irritate the Achilles tendon and cause pain and swelling. Symptoms include pain in the heel and along the tendon when walking or running. The area may feel painful and stiff in the morning. The tendon may be painful to touch or movement. The area may be swollen and warm. You may have trouble standing up on one toe.
Through the combination of Classical Homoeopathy, Ayurvedic-Unani formulations and Internationally Acclaimed Advanced Physiotherapy, pain due to Achilles Tendinitis is reduced considerably and rejuvenation of the affected area begins.
