Calling to set up an appointment with us at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic will allow you the opportunity to have a full examination so that we can get to the bottom of your Achilles tendonitis. Once we have a clear diagnosis and we know your full medical history, we will then be happy to go over with you all of the options that are available to you for Achilles tendonitis treatment in Woodinville.
During your examination, you can expect that we will look at all of the aspects of the injury while making sure that you detail all of your symptoms to us. There could be a thickening or an enlargement of your tendon or there may be bony spurs that are present within the lower portion of your tendon that sits at the back of your heel, which is known as insertional tendonitis.
While working with you at our offices, we will be able to discuss with you a combination of therapies that may include resting the leg, ice, exercise, stretching, physical therapy, massage, anti-inflammatories and strengthening protocols as well as orthotics and special shoes that are made to give you the support that you need during the healing process. If at any time it seems as though your treatments are not working or there is further injury to your Achilles tendon, we will then suggest more invasive treatment in the form of steroid injections or surgery.
Call (425)482-6663 to talk with the professionals at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic about your options in Achilles tendonitis treatment in Woodinville. You should know that you are always in good hands when you work with us and we look forward to meeting with you to discuss your case.
