Massage for Achilles Tendinitis in West Bloomfield, MI
The Achilles Tendon connects the calf muscles to the heel of the foot. It is highly susceptible to overuse injuries, like tendinitis, which can inhibit your life and your ability to live it in health. A massage for Achilles tendonitis alleviates pain and brings the foot back to usual ability and functionality.
Tendonitis is when the tendon becomes irritated and inflamed. The Achilles tendon is especially vulnerable to irritation from daily use, through activities like running, walking, and jumping.
Athletes are at high risk of developing tendonitis and can benefit the most from Massage for Achilles Tendonitis. The repetitive stress placed on the Achilles tendon during physical activity leads to tight calf muscles and bone spurs which irritate and inflame the tendon sheath. Improper warm-up before exercise and poor circulation also put an athlete at risk.
Pain in the back of the ankle and stiffness of the joint indicates the development of Achilles tendonitis. Discomfort typically worsens after long periods of immobility – like sleeping – and it can alleviate on its own after starting your day. In contrary to this, tendonitis is also irritated by increased amounts of movement and can be severe after performing a physical activity.
