Heel Hell: Achilles Issues

Heel Hell: Achilles Issues 

Heel pain when active? Especially when going up stairs, or running up hills?

Dealing with heel pain can be hell, and every active person has probably had to deal with heel pain at some point. As you start to age you can also become more at risk of Achilles injury. Remember that Achilles injuries are often secondary to a biomechanical deficit. Conservative care can help, meaning exercise, chiropractic, and acupuncture. Remember to fix the biomechanical problem to keep you out of heel hell!

If you have muscle imbalances, decreased flexibility, lower extremity muscle weaknesses that may even extend into the pelvis & low back these can lead to a functional breakdown of the Achilles tendon. Excessive pronation of the foot is found to be the major cause of Achilles tendinopathy.

Fixes: You may need custom orthotics to help with your over-pronation. Work on gait training for the foot & ankle. Also, improve the blood flow to the region (chiropractic, acupuncture). Be sure there are no low back, hip, or knee problems contributing to the imbalance & pain.
