Orthotics For Achilles Tendonitis

Achilles tendonitis happens when the Achilles tendon, which connects your calf muscle to your heel bone, gets irritated or inflamed. This often happens from overuse or strain, like when you suddenly increase your running distance or intensity. This can cause pain, swelling, and tightness at the back of the ankle, making everyday activities like walking quite uncomfortable.

Fortunately, special shoe inserts called orthotics can help relieve the strain on the Achilles tendon. At footlogics, for over 15 years we have been making high-quality orthotic insoles that are designed to provide the targeted support your achilles tendon needs, to heal and prevent further injury.

Find Comfort and Support with Footlogics

For Achilles tendon injuries, orthotics can help by providing cushioning and support to the affected area, which can reduce pain and inflammation. They may also help distribute pressure more evenly along the foot and ankle, reducing the risk of further injury or strain to the Achilles tendon.

In terms of injury prevention, orthotics can help correct biomechanical issues in the feet and ankles that may contribute to injuries during sports activities. Research suggests that orthotics treat achilles tendon repair and prevent sport injuries. By providing support and stability, orthotics can help improve foot and ankle alignment, reduce excessive pronation (rolling inward of the foot), and decrease stress on the Achilles tendon and other structures.

However, it's essential to note that the effectiveness of orthotics can vary depending on individual factors such as the severity of the injury, foot anatomy, and biomechanics. If the pain persists, please consult a specialist or a doctor.
