What are Achilles tendon complaints?
We see Achilles tendon complaints much more often at Fysi Tilburg than you would think. The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in your body and plays an important role in almost every running movement. So anyone who runs or plays sports can get these complaints. Pain and reduced mobility are the unpleasant consequences. Our professional physiotherapists are experienced enough to help you get rid of your complaints through a personal treatment plan and the best therapy.
How can you get Achilles tendon problems?
Achilles tendon complaints can develop all at once, but also gradually. You then get a kind of chain reaction: if you strain your Achilles tendon too much without sufficient rest, small tears can occur in the tendon. These can lead to inflammation and pain, which can result in conditions such as Achilles tendonitis. Injuries to the Achilles tendon can also become more common as you get older, simply because you become less flexible. If you suddenly start exercising longer or more intensively, your Achilles tendons are at extra risk. And did you know that you can also get Achilles tendon problems from wearing the wrong shoes?
