Forums Foot/Ankle Achilles Issues and PT Re: Achilles Issues and PT

AvatarPatrick Thomas

Did the achillies issue originate from running?
Running with tight calf muscles places more stress on the achillies tendon.

Are you looking at movement patterns?
Working up &downstream?

What changed/ happened in January to fire things up?
Are you seeing improvements with what you are doing during PT?

Bursitis occurs when a bursa is irritated from frequent pressure and it becomes inflamed. May be time for a new pair of shoes during the day or while training.

Lateral malleolus is a stabilizing factor of the ankle joint.
