Achilles Tendinitis

At Premier Podiatry and Orthopedics, we understand the challenges posed by Achilles tendinitis, a condition that can greatly affect individuals across various activity levels. Whether you’re an athlete or someone who enjoys an active lifestyle, the pain and discomfort caused by Achilles tendinitis can significantly impact your daily activities. That’s why we’re dedicated to offering comprehensive treatment options tailored to your unique needs.

Understanding Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles tendinitis involves inflammation and irritation of the Achilles tendon, the largest and strongest tendon in the human body, which connects the calf muscles to the heel bone and is crucial for activities like walking, running, and jumping.

Causes of Achilles tendinitis include overuse, improper footwear, biomechanical issues, and sudden changes in activity levels.

Our Comprehensive Approach:

Accurate Diagnosis: Our experienced podiatrists conduct thorough examinations and may utilize advanced diagnostic tools like ultrasound or MRI scans to determine the cause and severity of Achilles tendinitis.

Conservative Treatments

Rest, ice, compression, elevation, and physical therapy are common conservative treatments aimed at reducing inflammation, alleviating pain, and promoting healing.

Laser Therapy: Laser therapy accelerates tissue healing, reduces inflammation, and alleviates Achilles tendinitis pain by harnessing the power of light.

Custom orthotics and medications may also be prescribed to provide support and manage symptoms.

Rehabilitation: A structured rehabilitation program is essential for strengthening the affected area, improving flexibility, and preventing the recurrence of Achilles tendinitis.

Surgical Intervention: In rare cases where conservative treatments are ineffective, surgical options such as tendon repair or debridement may be considered for faster recovery.

Very friendly and approachable staff. The PA did not push for any unnecessary treatments without exhausting other means.

This office is amazing! Overall I give them 5 stars. Dr Fuji and Dr Ripp have been amazing to work with. The staff is extremely friendly and want to assist, especially Brenda. They can get a bit busy, but they did add a text feature which is very nice. We are extremely grateful for everyone here and not sure what we would do without them.

– Vanessa G.

The staff has been kind and helpful. I am impressed with the responsiveness I get from this office. It is far better than anywhere else I have been for medical treatment. I do not remember everyone’s names that have helped me so far but two that stick out are Sylvia and Brenda. Sylvia is on top of it as my surgery scheduler and Brenda is great at the front. I have not had my Surgery yet but Dr. Fuji seems like he will take care of me. I do not have any worries at this point in time.
