Achilles tendonitis

Achilles tendonitis is the inflammation of the tendon that connects the calf muscle to the back of the heel bone (calcaneus). Often can be attributed to wearing high-heeled shoes and switching to flats or sneakers, especially in female patients. Occasionally a bursitis and/or a spur may be present as well. In these cases, cryosurgery has been a very effective treatment since cortisone injections cannot be given in the achilles area without great caution. Other treatments include, casting, physical therapy and in the worst cases, surgical management.
