Does Achilles Tendonitis Keep You From Running, Walking, Or Otherwise Being As Active As You'd Like?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then make sure to keep reading
At More 4 Life, our treatment for Achilles tendonitis and Achilles tendinopathy helps people in St. Louis get back to the activities they enjoy without relying on pain medications, injections, or surgery
Whether you're a runner, walker, hiker, tennis or pickleball player, golfer, or if you just enjoy being active with your kids or grandkids, we'd love to help you get back to doing those things comfortably.
We help people with all kinds of Achilles tendon problems from acute Achilles tendinitis to chronic Achilles tendinopathy.
Many of our patients have tried other things for their Achilles tendon pain before and haven't gotten better. Some of those things include:
- Ice and/or heat
- Resting from activity
- YouTube videos
- Calf stretches
- Calf raises
- Using foam rollers
- Wearing heel lifts
- Wearing orthotic
- Massage therapy
- Physical therapy
...and still they haven't fully recovered yet.
Now I can already hear you thinking:
"But Dr. Candy, aren't you a physical therapist?"
And the answer to that is "YES"
However, if your impression of physical therapy includes doing some stretches (yes, the same ones you found on YouTube), and maybe getting your calf, Achilles tendon, and/or foot scraped with a metal or plastic tool, then I think you'll be pleasantly surprised to learn that that's NOT how our physical therapy for Achilles tendonitis works.
How is Our Treatment For Achilles Tendonitis Different?
First of all, Achilles tendon pain is not a one-size-fits all approach.
For example, the treatment of Achilles tendonitis (-itis = an inflammatory condition) may be very different than the treatment for Achilles tendinopathy (a chronic, non-inflammatory pathology), but many people treat them the same.
Second, not all pain in the Achilles tendon or heel area is fully an Achilles tendon problem.
For example, nerves from your lower back or leg can often mimic Achilles tendonitis.
That's why we believe that the first step in getting you better is to find the root cause of the problem.
Some of the things that contribute to Achilles tendon pain may include:
- Lower back problems
- Hip weakness
- Calf muscle stiffness
- Ankle instability
- Ankle stiffness
- Feet that are too flat OR too arched
- Improper footwear
- Increasing running mileage too quickly
- Poor nutrition
- Certain antibiotics (i.e. ciprofloxacin or norfloxacin)
- Statin cholesterol medications
That's a lot of factors to consider!

I work with people in St. Louis just like you who are looking to find a treatment for Achilles tendonitis that will provide lasting relief, so that their pain doesn't keep coming back.
What I can tell you is that pain medications, chiropractic treatments, physical therapy exercises, massage, injections, shock-wave therapy, OR EVEN FOOT SURGERY may provide some relief, but on their own, they are not likely to provide a long-term solution.
Why? Because they only treat the symptoms of your Achilles tendonitis without treating the root causes!
I know so many people who have just accepted they'll either have to suffer through Achilles tendonitis every time they exercise, or worse yet, have to stop exercising all together.
