Achilles tendonitis is caused from an overloaded achilles tendon. Most of the time it progresses to achilles tendonosis, which means the tendon is degenerating. If the tendon degenerates enough, it can lead to a partial or full thickness tear of the tendon. We treat the muscle and tendon adhesions to take pressure off the tendon. This will provide the proper environment for the tendon to regenerate and heal.
Muscle adhesion is the most common source of pain and stiffness and the most underdiagnosed.
Dr. Phipps is a level 5 Integrative Diagnosis provider and an expert at diagnosing and treating adhesions. He is able to localize and break down adhesions using his hands. Reducing the adhesions will restore normal strength, flexibility, and movement, eliminating pain and improving the performance of the muscle.
