Achilles Tendonitis 

Achilles Tendonitis and Your Feet

Achilles tendonitis is a painful inflammation at that point in the back of your lower ankle where the tendons in your leg attach to your heel.

The symptomatic piercing and burning sensations, which often diminish with activity, are experienced by distance runners as well as by people who stand for long periods of time.

The most common cause of achilles tendonitis is over-pronation in the sufferer’s stepping stride.

Other causes include insufficient stretching before athletic activity, inappropriate footwear and genetic deformities in the tendon or heel bone.


Why Footwear Matters

Shoes and inserts that slightly elevate the heel will reduce the pressure on your achilles tendon.

Footwear should also control your pronation and provide arch support. 

Dr. Comfort footwear is designed with extra depth to allow for properly fitted custom orthotic inserts to control pronotion, which will help to alleviate the pain caused by achilles tendonitis.
