There can be a number of reasons why you may be experiencing a great deal of pain in your foot, ankle or the back of your calf. For a lot of people, Achilles tendonitis is an underlying issue that can start to get worse over time if it is not treated properly. Call if you want to be able to get a proper diagnosis followed up by Achilles tendonitis treatment in Mukilteo with Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic.
We are a professional team that is dedicated to making sure that you not only understand your Achilles tendonitis, but that you also have all of the tools that you need to get on the right track for healing properly. We may suggest that you try out a number of exercises meant to strengthen your muscles and tendons or we could talk with you about wearing orthotic devices so that you can get the support that you need in your feet and ankles.
If you happen to go through several months of non-invasive treatments and it does not seem as though the Achilles tendonitis is starting to get any better, we may suggest that you think about having a surgical procedure done for a full repair. There can also be a more dramatic injury that can happen where your Achilles will make a snapping sound that is followed by sharp pain, which is a good indication that it has ruptured. This is also a situation where surgery is going to be necessary to give you the use of your leg again.
