Heel Pain/Tendinitis

Achilles tendinitis is caused by overuse of the band of tissues that connects the lower region of your calf muscle to your heel bone, also known as your Achilles tendon. Those at a higher risk for Achilles tendinitis are runners engaging in intense training or middle-aged people who participate in sports on occasion.

If you’re experiencing Achilles tendinitis, you may encounter mild aching, tenderness, and/or stiffness in the back of the leg or above the heel. Fortunately, most cases can be treated, and your highly qualified doctor will discuss ways to perform at-home care to prevent recurring episodes. For more serious cases that lead to tendon tears, surgery may be required. Your doctor will conduct a thorough examination and will discuss the best course of action with you.

If you have questions about Achilles tendinitis or would like to schedule an appointment, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (630) 990-9500 (Villa Park) or (847) 294-9600 (Des Plaines)!
