Achilles tendonitis is inflammation of the Achilles’ tendon and can lead to degeneration.
The Achilles tendon is the large tendon located in the back of the leg that inserts into the heel.
The pain caused by Achilles tendonitis can develop gradually without a history of trauma.
The pain can be a shooting pain, burning pain, or even an extremely piercing pain.
Achilles tendonitis should not be left untreated due to the danger that the tendon can become weak and ruptured.
Achilles Tendonitis is aggravated by activities that repeatedly stress the tendon, causing inflammation.
In some cases, even prolonged periods of standing can cause symptoms.
Achilles Tendonitis is a common problem often experienced by athletes, particularly distance runners.
It is a difficult injury to treat in athletes due to their high level of activity and reluctance to stop or slow down their training.
Individuals who suffer from Achilles tendonitis often complain that their first steps out of bed in the morning are extremely painful.
Another common complaint is pain after steps are taken after long periods of sitting. This pain often lessens with activity.
There are several factors that can cause Achilles tendonitis.
The most common cause is over-pronation.
Over-pronation occurs in the walking process, when the arch collapses upon weight bearing, adding stress on the Achilles tendon.
Other factors that lead to Achilles tendonitis are improper or lack of shoe support, inadequate stretching prior to engaging in athletics, a short Achilles tendon, direct trauma (injury) to the tendon, and heel bone deformity.
Treatment and Prevention
Athletes, particularly runners, should incorporate a thorough stretching program to properly warm-up the muscles.
They should decrease the distance of their walk or run, apply ice after the activity, and avoid any uphill climbs.
Athletes should use an orthotic device, reinforced heel cup, or heel cradle for extra support.
A heel cup or heel cradle elevates the heel to reduce stress and pressure on the Achilles tendon.
The device should be made with light-weight, shock-absorbing materials.
An orthotic device can be used to control over-pronation, support the longitudinal arch, and reduce stress on the Achilles tendon.
If the problem persists, consult your foot doctor.

I can’t get over the fantastic service. If I ever meet anyone in the same predicament as me, I will let them know about your company.
I need to talk to the men out there. Is your 6E hurting your feet?
I have received three calls this week stating that problem.
A few reasons, why our 9E program, has been an unbelievable success!!!!
Oh, a note: all 3 of those men love their new 9E width shoes!!
All so what is so important about those FREE 3 sets of inserts https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xW97fgWCSG8
First, we are the only site on the internet that offers 3 sets FREE!!!
Second, if your feet hurt on the bottom, it is because they lack of support and this is what these heat moldable customized inserts do for your feet.
More foundation and they mold to the plantar(bottom) of your foot and creates that maximum support, balance, and comfort.
The question I get is “what does this have to do with the working environment?”
Besides this being an interesting story and you as a reader to understand the need of proper length and width for your feet to be 100 percent comfortable.
The fewer distractions and the better health, in your life, the more output and outlook you’ll have towards life and especially towards work.
Meaning that you gain a better status in your working environment, and your total daily production is not at risk.
If your shoe is too large, too tight, too heavy (in weight), no support, wow what a comfort problem!!
A SIGNIFICANT FACT,
IF YOU HAVE AN EMPLOYEE THAT IS MISFIT IN A PAIR OF SHOES?
Then you have an injured employee, and production is the guarantee to be at a lower rate!
