In this video we discuss Achilles tendon injuries and the progressive treatments available at UFAI.
The best and most effective time to treat any Achilles problem is when the injury or symptoms are new. During that time, your body is still actively trying to fix the problem (tendonitis) instead of after the injury has lingered and your body has accepted this as your new norm (tendinosis).
There are a number of non-invasive conservative treatments that we typically attempt for both new and lingering injuries (with the exception of severe Achilles tears, which we will discuss later). These treatments are effective over 90% of time when the injury is still fresh.
