Achilles tendinitis is caused by intense or repetitive strain on the Achilles tendon, the band of tissue that connects your calf muscles to your heel bone. This tendon is used when you walk, run, jump or push up on your toes.
The structure of the Achilles tendon weakens with age, which can make it more susceptible to injury — particularly in people who may participate in sports only on the weekends or who have suddenly increased the intensity of their running programs.
Photobiomodulation can reduce inflammation and pain. In most cases eight to ten twenty minute treatments will largely reduce the pain associated with achilles tendinitis. Everyone's healing response can vary depending on the individuals current state of health. We gladly provide a complimentary consultation to give you and idea of your personal treatment plan and cost. Please call 561-405-9577.
