What can we do to help you?

The aim of the treatment is to reduce strain on the tendon. A sports physiotherapist or podiatrist can identify reasons of strain by conducting biomechanical examinations while prescribing specific exercises to strengthen and stretch the calf and other leg muscles, helping to prevent recurrence of the pain.

  • Single leg mini squat
  • Bulgarian squat
  • Star excursion
  • Running man on trampoline
  • Lateral box jump
  • Step ups
  • Forward lunges
  • Single leg ½ squats
  • Single leg chair stands
  • Standing gastroc stretch

A podiatrist may prescribe or recommend foot orthotics for certain cases.

With difficult cases, other treatment modalities like Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) and Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) injection might be offered by your doctor.
