Achilles tendonitis

Achilles tendonitis (achilles tendon inflammation) mostly ails people who either run or walk very much. The inflammation develops when the achilles tendon is exerted too much, it tightens and is damaged. The common symptoms are: pain above your heel, tendon thickening, lumps along the tendon, swelling and cracking sounds when moving your ankle.

Treatment

  • Seek professional help if the symptoms do not disappear over time or they reappear.
  • Rest and reduce your activity level. Do not walk with completely flat soled shoes or barefoot.
  • Apply a cold dressing onto the area to reduce swelling.
  • Use heel supports in your shoes in order to reduce stress to your heel.
  • Use insoles that support and stabilize your heel.
  • Begin activities by degrees and very carefully when the condition eases. Remember to gently stretch the area since this reduces the risk of the ailment recurring.
