When the Achilles tendon which attaches the heel to the calf muscles becomes inflamed this is what is known as Achilles tendinitis. The main symptom to this injury is mild to acute pain located on and around the tendon. This injury is most commonly caused by overuse and strain on the Achilles’ tendon which can arise from a number of different things such as overtraining, poor biomechanics of the feet or from obesity. This injury is also fairly common amongst athletes and runners due to the increased amount of pressure and strain that running and sporting activities places upon the the Achilles’ tendon.
If you are suffering from Achilles tendinitis one of the best treatments is to wear orthotic insoles that will help to support your feet and protect the Achilles from further damage.

For the most effective treatment and prevention it is advised to combine wearing insoles with other conventional treatments such as stretching the Achilles’ tendon and foot muscles adequately before physical activity, ensuring that you wear properly fitted shoes that support the foot, when the achilles feels inflamed that you make sure to rest the foot.
