advice for achilles soreness

(2 discussions)

I am a competitive runner and have achilles tendon soreness.
It is not severe but I would like some professional advice, espeically about possibly getting orthodics.
I don’t know who I should see- PT? Podiastrist? Orthapedist? Whats the difference?

    Achilles tendon problems can be due to a variety of causes, some of which can be helped by orthotics and some not. My recommendation is you see a podiatrist who can discuss your options and go from there.
