What is a Tendinitis?

Tendinitis is a condition when a tendon becomes inflamed. Tendons connect muscles to the bones. Tendinitis may be caused by an injury or over exertion of the ankle. Improper form during physical activity or lack of stretching before exertion may be other possible causes for tendinitis. Individuals who have ‘flat feet’ or tight tendons are most prone to this.

Achilles tendinitis, an inflammation of the Achilles tendon is the most common cause of ankle as well as foot pain.

Tendinitis Symptoms

Tendinitis pain may increase with more movement. Sometimes there is a swelling too at the tendon.

If you are experiencing discomfort, it is advisable to allow your body adequate rest and apply ice to the affected area. However, should the pain persist beyond a week, we strongly recommend reaching out to our office for a thorough evaluation. Timely intervention is crucial, as unresolved pain may escalate into a more persistent and chronic issue, posing greater challenges for effective treatment. Don’t delay—let us address your concerns and guide you toward optimal recovery.
