Homeopathic Treatments for Achilles Tendinitis in Waterford, MI
Achilles tendinitis is a common injury that is particularly prevalent in runners. Because it is so common, many patients who suffer from it often request homeopathic treatment.
At Michigan Chiropractic Specialists, we encourage our patients to utilize natural and non-toxic homeopathic treatments for treating their Achilles tendinitis symptoms, including massage, physiotherapy, and chiropractic treatment.
What is Achilles tendinitis?
Achilles tendinitis results from strain to the tendon that connects the heel bone at the back of the ankle to the major muscles in the calf.
When this tendon is overworked, the tendon becomes inflamed and irritated, resulting in pain at the back of the heel, a burning sensation, redness, and even the development of scar tissue.
How can I treat it?
The best treatment for Achilles tendinitis is prevention. At Michigan Chiropractic Specialists, our team of chiropractors and massage therapists can help you stretch and work the muscles of the calf and engage the skeletal structure to keep you from re-injury.
Because this area typically has limited blood flow, stimulating blood flow to the Achilles tendon is an essential part of treating the issue. Increased blood flow quickens the body’s natural healing processes.
Massage therapy promotes blood flow to the area through vigorous stimulation. Massage therapy also ensures the tendon remains flexible throughout the healing process to mitigate undue pain.
Physiotherapy is another effective means of treating Achilles tendinitis pain. Our team of physiotherapists will work with you to engage both the muscles and skeletal structure using a combination of heat, massage, and exercise treatments that are tailored to you.
At Michigan Chiropractic Specialists, we offer corrective exercise and care for prevention and are fully equipped to help you safely and naturally treat and prevent Achilles tendinitis, no matter how advanced your injury.
