Achilles Tendonitis

The Achilles tendon is the largest, strongest tendon in the human body.  Overuse of the Achilles tendon may cause the tendon to swell, become irritated, inflamed, and painful; this is Achilles tendinitis. Common for runners, Achilles tendonitis can affect to anyone who puts increased stress on their feet (e.g., basketball players and dancers).  Left untreated, Achilles tendonitis leads to plantar fasciitis and Achilles Tendon rupture.  

To address Achilles tendonitis, use the BioZoom, BioPad, Bliss to breakup these adhesions, increase blood supply and decrease swelling.  Using the Following protocol(s) Dr. Mike has developed, you can guide yourself through pain and return to sport and play.     

Use the BioZoom to breakup adhesion. Watch the following videos below and follow Dr. Mike's outlined protocols

After you have elongated the muscle and fascia of the Achilles, calf and foot, the BioPad can be placed on the achilles and calf as follows:  

Place Bio Pad vertical to cover more surface area, in the mid belly of the calf, and other pad on the inside of the Achilles Tendon.  Increase intensity to where its slightly uncomfortible and run BioPad for one cycle of 20 mins.  

Finish with the Addaday Bliss for 20-30 minuites to relax and massage the calf, ankle and foot.  

Do this daily for healthy muscle and fascia.
