• The Achilles is the biggest tendon in the body, and is crucial for all movements of the foot during walking, running and jumping.
• Tendonitis can occur in the middle of the tendon or toward the lower. High impact weight bearing activities such as jogging, fast walking and running are usually limited due to tendonitis.
• You can help keep your Achilles tendon in good health by warming up before any weight-bearing activity and cooling it with ice afterwards. wear shoes that are appropriate for your activity, increase your exercise regimen gradually over time and “warm down” after strenuous exercise.
• At The FAST Lab we conduct spin-scans, run analysis, muscle imbalance corrections and kinesio-taping which will help you avoid the chances of injury and chronic pain.
