Shoes For Achilles Tendonitis

Achilles Tendonitis is pain at the back of the heel associated with inflammation of the achilles tendon as it runs behind the ankle and inserts on the back surface of the heel bone. The inflammation is called achilles tendonitis. Achilles Tendonitis is common among people who run and walk a lot and have tight tendons. The condition occurs when the tendon is strained over time, causing the fibers to tear or stretch along its length, or at its insertion on to the heel bone. This leads to inflammation, pain, and the possible growth of a bone spur on the back of the heel bone. The inflammation is aggravated by the chronic irritation that sometimes accompanies an active lifestyle and certain activities that strain an already tight tendon.

RECOMMENDATIONS: Stretch each foot and achilles tendon before and after exercise. If you have not exercised in a long time, consult your podiatric physician before starting a new exercise program. We recommend the Powerstep Arch Supports for everyday use and a night splint for chronic pain.

SHOE RECOMMENDATIONS: Purchase and maintain good shoes and replace them regularly. We recommend the following shoe brands for those with achilles tendonitis and/or heel pain; Acor, Brooks, Comfortrite, Darco GentleStep, Drew, Finn Comfort, Klogs, Naot, Orthofeet, P.W. Minor, and Sanita .
