Re: calcification of the achillies tendon

Many people have Achilles Insertion Calcific Tendinosis (AICT)

Many people have calcification of the Achilles tendon and it does not hurt. We must be sure that is the problem and not just an incidental finding on an x-ray.

Sometimes a heel lift helps, sometimes immobilization or physical therapy and sometimes surgery is indicated. Each patient must be evaluated on an individual basis. I can not suggest anything specific since I have not examined her.

The ads you see are not mine, they belong to the site hoist. So if you purchase anything, you are on your own.

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
