Achilles tendonitis is a painful and often debilitating inflammation or injury of the Achilles tendon. This large tendon is an extension of the two calf muscles; it runs down the back of the lower leg and attaches to the heel bone (calcaneus). The Achilles tendon connects the strong leg muscles to the foot and gives you the ability to rise up on your toes, which allows you to walk. Unfortunately, Achilles tendonitis can make walking almost impossible.
There are two phases of the condition. Fasciitis is inflammation. Inflammation alone can be treated with numerous conservative treatments. Anything that addresses rest and inflammation can be helpful.
Chronic Achilles tendinitis (tendinosis), is successfully treated with Extracorporeal Acoustic Soft Wave Therapy with the TRT's Urogold 100 a FDA approved device proven to create this repair without surgery.
The effects of EASWT are best documented in areas of changes in tissue density, such as those where a tendon attaches to a bone (enthesiopathies) and where a bone attaches to a ligament (desmopathies). For this reason, it is very effective for painful connective tissue in the foot and heels. Additionally, EASWT gives new hope by relieving pain, eliminating the risk factors associated with surgery and allowing people to resume their normal lives.
