Achilles Tendonitis Treatment in Singapore
The Achilles tendon runs from the calf muscles down to the heel bone. This fibrous tissue allows you to walk, run, jump and stand on the balls of your feet. Intense physical activity can cause inflammation to the Achilles tendon. Some symptoms you can experience include stiffness, aches, burning sensation, swelling and redness around the inflamed tendon. If these symptoms do not subside, you will require medical attention. At The Pain Relief Clinic, our doctor will be able to advise you on the most appropriate Achilles tendonitis treatment among the options we offer in Singapore.
Generally, Achilles tendonitis can be treated through stretches and muscle strengthening exercises. Some patients also resort to medications. While there are many tendonitis treatment options available in Singapore, they may not work on some people who have severe tendonitis. Moreover, some may find it difficult to source for suitable and authorised physiotherapists, and even if they do, they are unable to allocate enough rest for a full recovery. Some treatments can be too costly as well.
The Achilles tendonitis treatment options we offer at our clinic in Singapore emphasize the use of non-intrusive biomedical technology. We offer:
- Shockwave Therapy
- Indiba Activ ProRecovery
- Rehabilitative Electromedical Stimulation
- Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
Is there a need for X-Rays?
A clinical diagnosis can be provided after thoroughly reviewing a patient’s medical history and performing a physical examination of the inflamed tendon. However, doctors may recommend an X-ray in order to rule out any other underlying condition before diagnosing the patient with tendonitis. It can also be requested if they need a more accurate visualisation of the bones before prescribing a more precise treatment.
If you are experiencing the symptoms of Achilles tendonitis, you can reach out to our doctors at our clinic in Singapore to discuss the most appropriate treatment for you.
