Achilles pain should be treated early, if left untreated it may lead to more serious injuries such as a partial or even worse a full rupture of the Achilles tendon. Rupture of the Achilles may require surgical repair and often results in months of rehabilitation.
The Achilles tendon consists of many small fibres often some of these become torn and this can lead to pain as the body struggles to repair the damage due to the fact that the Achilles tendon has a poor blood supply. At Hampton Podiatry we can arrange the use of laser to speed up the repair process this also reduces the pain level whilst the Achilles repairs itself.
If you suffer from Achilles pain book an appointment so we can assess your issue and treat you before the pain leads to a more serious problem.
