Achilles Tendonitis

Runners regularly experience problems like this. Feeling a lot of stress and pain in the tendon may indicate Achilles Tendinitis. It usually flairs up when you walk quickly or start running. It can be stubborn as tendon problems usually take longer to settle than muscle injuries.

Rest, ice and anti-inflammatory are usually the first response. Physiotherapy intervention in a top-rated running injury clinic is advised for a good recovery.

Plantar Faciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. Plantar Fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move the pain normally decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing, walking or running. Plantar Fasciitis is more common among runners. People who are overweight and those who wear shoes with inadequate support have an increased risk of plantar fasciitis. Even though Plantar Fasciitis can develop without an obvious cause, some other factors as well may increase your risk of developing it, including:
Age, most common ages affected are between 40 to 60.
Activities that cause a lot of stress on your heels such as long-distance running, ballet dancing or aerobic dance.

Foot mechanics can also be a cause. Flat feet, a high arch or and an abnormal walking or running pattern can put added stress on the plantar fascia.
Occupational work is also a possible cause such as factory workers, teachers and others who spend a lot of time on their feet.

Ignoring Plantar fasciitis can lead to chronic heel pain the seriously affects your regular activities. It can also change the way you walk and lead to foot, knee, hip and back problems.
