Insertional Achilles Tendonitis Treatments
At The Heel Pain Practice, we’re specialists in treating insertional Achilles tendonitis with radiotherapy – a simple, safe and non-invasive treatment using X-rays to reduce the pain around the heel bone and Achilles tendon.
There are other options for you to consider when looking into treatments for the condition. The most common are:
- Physiotherapy – a physiotherapist may suggest several exercises and stretches to strengthen your Achilles tendon and help with pain control and stiffness
- Home remedies – R.I.C.E treatment may be recommended initially to reduce your inflammation and pain – rest, ice, compression and elevation
- Medication – non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can be prescribed to help reduce pain and inflammation in your foot
- Surgery – as a last resort, a surgeon can remove the degenerated tissue and any part of the bone that is irritating the tendon
