Achilles Tendonitis

Is a repetitive strain injury of the muscles of the lower leg, gastroc/soleus, that causes irritation to the Achilles tendon. As the injury develops, painful adhesions (scar tissue) form between the Achilles tendon and the tendon sheath.

This can be treated with Active Release Techniques® and Graston Technique® by breaking down the scar tissue formed and working the tight muscles.
