The aim of the treatment is to reduce strain on the tendon. A sports physiotherapist or podiatrist can identify reasons of strain by conducting biomechanical examinations while prescribing specific exercises to strengthen and stretch the calf and other leg muscles, helping to prevent recurrence of the pain.
A podiatrist may prescribe or recommend foot orthotics for certain cases.
With difficult cases, other treatment modalities like Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) and Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP) injection might be offered by your doctor.
