Achilles Tendon Pain

Achilles Tendinopathy 

 

  Running Clinic     Sports Physiotherapy      Treatment

 

Formally known as Achilles Tendonitis the new and preferred term for pain in the Achilles region is ‘Tendinopathy’.  This essentially means Painful Tendon.  Helpful diagnosis!

Now, there are two types of tendon pain: Mid portion Tendinopathy and Insertional Tendinopathy.  Now don’t get too worried about diagnosis as that’s our job to identify and diagnose it appropriately.

The mid portion one is the most common to folk and while there are risk factors it seems absolutely anyone could get this condition.

When a tendon becomes painful it appears to ‘react’ to the load or exercise it has been exposed to.  This loading causes pain.  The tendon essentially becomes intolerant to the exercise and activates nerves to tell your brain. The result is pain!

Common in runners to varying degrees, medial “shin splints” is a generic term given to pain on the inside of the lower leg.  Essentially, on the medial (inside) aspect of the tibia. Medial tibial stress syndrome is perhaps a more appropriate term since is describes exactly what is going on – Stress!  Its a condition associated with over training and is therefore common place for some individuals.
