Achilles Tendinitis in Wappingers Falls, NY
Achilles tendinitis is an injury that happens when someone stresses the band of tissue that connects their heel bone to the calf muscles at the back of their lower leg (the Achilles tendon).
Usually, Achilles tendinitis happens when runners or athletes suddenly start to run faster or play harder than usual. Middle-aged people who play tennis or sports like basketball on the weekends can also be at risk. People who try to treat their injury at home without the help of a podiatrist in (location) risk making the problem worse. A more serious case of Achilles tendinitis can lead to tearing or rupturing the tendon, so it is important to see a podiatrist right away for an evaluation if you or someone you love starts feeling pain after running or other sports activities.
