Tendonitis of the Achilles Tendon
Itis = inflammation
With the philosophy of "treating the source not just the symptom" in mind:
- faulty biomechanics from the foot can be the cause of accumulated tension in other areas of the body such as the achilles tendon.
- having a postural & foot evaluation to determine the status of your arch is an important first step in evaluating how to treat this set of symptoms.
- taking medication may be masking the problem but not treating the root cause of the tissue break-down.
