Are you experiencing any of the following?

  • Heel Pain during or after exercise
  • Pain & stiffness at the back of the heel especially in the morning
  • Pain at the back of the heel when; walking, running, going uphill & going upstairs

If you have answered YES to ANY of the above, you may be suffering from:


The achilles tendon is the large tendon at the back of the ankle which connects the large calf muscles to the heel bone. It is this tendon that can become inflamed for various reasons, eg: training too much or too soon, training on hard surfaces, uphill activity, change in footwear, tendency to roll your feet inwards when walking or running.

How can we help?

  • Ultrasound treatment, strapping, prescribe a rehabilitation programme & more!
