One phone call to us at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic will help you to get the Achilles tendonitis treatment in Sammamish.
There can be a number of symptoms that may come along with Achilles tendonitis, which include pain, tenderness of the area or a lump or nodule that is due to the thickening of the tendon. If you are having any of these symptoms, it is going to be best that we do a full examination to be sure of exactly where the issue is so that we can formulate the right plan for treatment.
Some of the different treatments that we may recommend will include ice, immobilization, oral medications, night splints, physical therapy and orthotics. If it seems that a combination of these therapies are not working or there is a further injury to your Achilles tendon, it might be necessary to go through with surgery to give you the repairs that you need.
