Do heel lifts help if I have Achilles Tendonitis?

Orthotics

Heel lifts can help when treating this condition as they can reduce the tension felt in, and stretch to, your Achilles tendon. This is often matched with a program of exercises to slowly stretch and gradually strengthen the calf muscle group.

Should this not be successful in treating the condition, the next stage often sees the creation of a biomechanical orthotic, which is custom molded. This then works to balance the biomechanics of the foot. In some cases, where the condition is severe, a cast to immobilize the area may be required.

When custom orthotics are required, the go-to place in Boulder is the PTI Orthotics Laboratory. To find out more about how they can help this, and other, conditions, you can call 303-443-9999
