Treatment

There are many ways to treat the conditions of the Achilles tendon that include:

(Seeing a doctor to make the correct diagnosis for your condition)

  • Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy
  • Refraining and resting from the aggravating activity

  • Cold therapy

  • Wearing a heel lift to take the strain off the Achilles tendon

  • Wearing the appropriate shoes for your foot type and athletic activity

  • Using anti-inflammatories recommended or prescribed from your doctor

  • Changing your training methods

  • The use of custom molded orthotics

  • Taping and strapping

  • Going to prescribed physicaltherapy

  • Steroid injection therapy

  • Stretching Exercises

If the pain of the achilles tendon persists from the above conditions a scan with an MRI and surgery will be recommended especially if all conservative treatments have failed or there is a rupture.

If you are experiencing plantar fasciitis pain please visit any of our five locations, Savannah, Hinesville, Statesboro, Claxton, or Bluffton and speak with our podiatrists to create a treatment plan perfectly suited to you and your needs.
