BV Foot Clinic: Don't Ignore a Tender Tendon

                                                 Don’t Ignore a Tender Tendon

Achilles tendinitis is the inflammation of the tendon that connects the heel bone to the calf muscles. Usually caused by overexertion, it leads to pain, stiffness, tenderness, and swelling in the heel area. If you suspect that you're suffering from it, rest, ice (20 minutes, several times per day), and a non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory, OTC pain reliever may help. However, if symptoms persist, give us a call, so that we can properly diagnose the condition, and devise a customized treatment for you.
