Achilles tendonitis, or the inflammation of the Achilles tendon, can be a cause of heel pain. "We often see this "overuse" condition in our athletic patients who play high-impact sports, such as basketball or tennis. They often have a sudden increase of repetitive activity involving the Achilles tendon, which puts too much stress on the tendon too quickly, leading to micro-injuries of the tendon, says Michael Ambroziak, DPM, FACFAS

"To treat Achilles tendonitis, we often immobilize the foot with a walking boot or cast; and also use physical therapy, orthotics, and ice to help repair the tendon. If the tendon is severely damaged or if non-surgical treatments don't work, surgery may be necessary," says Dr. Ambroziak.
