What is Achilles Tendonitis?
Achilles tendonitis is a very common overuse injury of the tendon, which disconnects or disrupts the tendon connecting the calf muscle to your heel bone, often seen in athletes and avid exercise enthusiasts. Sometimes, we may take for granted how intricate and complex the human foot is with all its working parts. Yet, when pain or a condition develops in the foot, it can change your quality of life. Drs. Richard Swails and Dustin Lloyd are board-certified and fellowship-trained podiatry specialists equipped to treat a vast array of foot conditions, deformities, and injuries, like Achilles tendonitis. With its lingering type of pain, Achilles tendonitis can take months to heal.
