Achilles Tendinopathy

Treatment for Achilles


The common symptom of Achilles Tendinopathy is pain over the Achilles tendon. The tendon is often tender to touch and may have related thickening.

Research on the pathology of Achilles Tendinopathy shows that tendon overload and repeated strain causes accumulative micro-trauma and degeneration. So under the microscope, the affected fibers of the Achilles tendon are abnormal with a poor healing response.

Contributing factors to this may include any muscle weakness or inflexibility which predisposes the joint to reduced stability and poor shock absorption. Abnormal biomechanics of the pelvis and knee and weak calf muscle may also contribute.


Our Physiotherapists are highly trained and skilled in biomechanical analysis. Therefore, they are able to help identify the contributing factors and cause of injury. Your physio will be able to treat the your impairments and provide appropriate advice. Following this, they will implement a thorough rehabilitation program to also to assist in preventing re-injury.
