Treating Achilles Tendinitis

treating Achilles TendinitisDallas residents who love the thrill of competition and spending time with friends (or even making new ones!) should check out Dallas Sport & Social Club. The organization offers an array of recreational sport leagues for those who want to play football, basketball, soccer, and softball, but also has less physically demanding activities like darts and ping pong.

If you decide to join a soccer or softball league, you should consider creating a workout plan to prepare your body and reduce the odds you will develop Achilles tendon problems. If you find you need Achilles tendinitis treatment, you can find exactly what you need here at Dallas Podiatry Works. We hope you are able to stay safe while performing your favorite activities, but lets’ take a look what is entailed with caring for Achilles tendinitis:

  • Rest. Your first step in overcoming this injury is to stop activities that cause pain. You do not have to completely remain inactive, though! (Actually, it’s better if you don’t.) Switching to low-impact activities like cycling or swimming is wise choice while your Achilles heals.
  • Medication. Naproxen, ibuprofen, and other pain relievers can reduce both the pain and the swelling you are experiencing on account of the injury. Check with our office for specific dosage recommendations.
  • Ice. We may recommend an icing regimen to further alleviate pain and swelling as part of your treatment plan. Remember, always wrap the ice or ice pack in a thin towel to protect your skin.
  • Physical therapy. We will provide you exercises you can perform to help strengthen the calf muscle and place less stress upon the Achilles tendon.

Your best practice for Achilles tendinitis treatment is to visit our medical professionals at Dallas Podiatry Works. We will assess your condition and its severity, and then create an effective treatment plan to put the pain in your rearview mirror.

Your Top-Rated Orthodontist in Dallas Podiatry Works & Beyond

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.*

Alonzo S.

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.*

Cara D.

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!!!*

Patrick G.

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.*
