Here at Dallas Podiatry Works, we provide treatment for many foot and ankle conditions that cause pain and impair functionality, but our preference is to know you were able to avoid an issue from developing in the first place. To help you with this, we have several Achilles tendinitisprevention tips that are actually quite easy to follow.
Achilles tendinitis is a common source of heel pain, especially if you have recently increased the intensity or duration of your training sessions. It also can happen when you only participate in intense physical activity sporadically (like the proverbial “weekend warriors” who hit the courts and fields on the weekends).
Some of the best Achilles tendinitis prevention tips include:
Our hope is that these Achilles tendinitis prevention tips will keep you safe while you perform your favorite activities, but come see us if any issue develops. We will accurately diagnose your condition and then create an effective treatment plan for you.

I had a problem with my ankle and called the office to see about getting an appointment sometime this week. I was thoroughly pleased when they were able to work me into their busy schedule on the same day !!! Thank you to the staff and Dr. Northcutt.*
The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of foot care.*
I was fortunate to happen upon Dallas Podiatry Works, where I got Dr. Northcutt to help me. Can’t say enough good about him: he was nice, kind, and a good listener. That last is a particularly important trait. My foot got better under his care, and I felt respected as a patient and a person. The clinic staff is helpful and clear as well. I highly recommend Dallas Podiatry Works.*
Dr. Northcutt is absolutely a true Godsend for me. On top of that, he is a true professional and has great patient skills. Never condescending or impersonal. He sincerely spend time with you and explains why you may have the symptoms and how to take care of them. Gosh, he even shakes hands with the patient, introduces himself and even says goodbye. Usually, not the norm!!!*
Thank you for your quick response to my problem. I fully expected to come in and get the run around and be scheduled for another appointment to come back for the ingrown toe nail to be fixed. I was quit surprised when a single visit and you had me out the door with no more pain. Again, thanks so much.*
