Achilles tendonitis - natural regeneration of the Achilles tendon
Achilles tendon is the biggest tendon in our body that is often prone to injuries followed by inflammation.
Heel pain, swelling or tension are among the most common symptoms of problematic Achilles tendon. Good news is you can solve your problem without a surgery! The basis of the treatment is intense regeneration of the pulled tendon. Natural balsam Salikort for Achilles tendonitis can take care of this for you.
Salikort balsam offers natural help for treating Achilles tendonitis. Mint and eucalyptus help cool Achilles tendon and bring desired relief. Willow bark specifically targets pain.
When experiencing Achilles tendon pain, it’s important to supply the body with vitamins and minerals that will help regenerate and heal the inside of the tendon tissue. The best treatment includes a combination of calcium and magnesium, which support muscle activity and help regenerate the tissue.
Value pack for Achilles tendonitis offers a complex treatment in the form of both natural and nutritional skincare. The products contained in the pack are made naturally and thus in no way harm the body but rather relieve the symptoms of Achilles tendonitis.
Injury and pain of Achilles tendonitis
Achilles tendon is the biggest and strongest tendon in the body. When the calf muscles bend, the Achilles tendon clings to the heel bone enabling us to walk, run or jump. Despite its strength, the Achilles tendon is prone to injuries caused by insufficient supply of blood or due to tension and usually cracks 5 cm above the heel bone.
Achilles tendonitis shouldn’t be underestimated. The most common symptoms of an inflamed Achilles tendon are:
- Swelling of the Achilles tendon in the area where it touches the heel bone
- Feelings of leg stiffness
- Heel pain
- Worsening pain when playing sports
- Lingering pain after sports activities
- Lump in the area of the Achilles tendon
- Cracking noises when moving
Pain brought by Achilles tendonitis makes even the most basic movement unbearable.
We divide injuries into 3 categories:
- Pulling (distension) usually happens during the wrong move or foot placement when playing a sport. You can pull the tendon by neglecting stretching or by putting too much pressure on the Achilles tendon.
- Achilles tendon rupture (partial rupture) comes with tearing of several ligament fibers. When you put your foot down harder than usual or when you have a pulled Achilles tendon, the risk of rupture is pretty high and can happen when you least expect it.
- Rupture (complete rupture) long-term overload, ignoring pain and underestimating the symptoms can lead to a chronic condition of torn ligament. In this state, all ligament fibers are torn.
Why does Achilles heel hurt?
Excess exercise usually leads to Achilles heel injury. Any repeated movement creates pressure on the Achilles tendon and can lead to inflammation.
Among inflammation causes are:
- Exercising without stretching and warm up
- Overloading calf muscles during physical activity
- Sports such as tennis require fast stops and changes in the direction
- Sudden increase of the physical activity
- Wearing old and improper footwear
- Wearing high heels every day
- Achilles tendon weakens with every year
Achilles heel treatment
Small or medium sized injuries of Achilles tendon can be treated at home with HillVital products. To speed up the healing process, we recommend:
Supplying your Achilles tendon with nutrients. Apply Salikort balsam for Achilles heel onto affected area to relieve pain and inflammation. You can also use it in combination with an elastic band that tightens the Achilles tendon.
Let your foot rest. Avoid physical exertion, limit sports activities and give your Achilles tendon time to regenerate completely. We also recommend supplying your body with vitamins CAL MAG + D3 to make the regeneration count!!
Wear proper footwear. Proper footwear is essential for the healing process. Wear good quality shoe inserts to lift your heel up and protect the Achilles tendon.
Be careful when exercising. Injured Achilles tendon requires proper rest before you can gradually increase the pressure you put on it. Even when it’s healed completely, one should still be cautious when increasing the intensity of training sessions. Do not neglect stretching and proper warm-up. Your Achilles tendon will thank you even at the slightest warm up done first thing in the morning.
When you are experiencing tendon inflammation, don’t forget to drink enough water! If your body doesn’t have sufficient amount of water during performance, it will pull water from the tendons, and some parts will start to dry out as a result of this. Sufficient water intake takes care of tendon elasticity and flexibility so it’s imperative that you don’t forget it.
