The Achilles tendon is a testament to human resilience, strength, and agility. As an athlete, it underpins many of your most dynamic movements. But when an Achilles tendon strain takes hold, your athletic prowess can be tested. Lean on Austin Manual Therapy, where our objective is to help you regain that strength and rebound with enhanced vigor.
The Achilles tendon, connecting your calf muscles to your heel bone, is instrumental in running, jumping, and standing on your toes. Straining this tendon implies stretching it beyond its normal capacity, sometimes causing small tears that result in pain, swelling, and reduced function.
