What is tendonitis?

Tendonitis is an irritation in the transition between muscle and bone (tendon) which is often caused by overexertion or underexertion. Muscles are attached to bones with tendons and if a muscle is used a lot and the tendon is therefore under a lot of strain, it can become overloaded. There are small cracks in the tendon that cause you pain when you tighten the muscle. In the foot, the most common tendonitis is Heel Spurs. 1 in 10 people sometimes suffers from Heel Spurs in their lifetime.

How can I treat tendonitis in the foot?

Tendon complaints recover on their own, but sometimes the recovery from tendonitis can take months to years. However, this recovery can be facilitated by a proper combination of resting, putting the foot up, cooling and movement. You need to apply this movement at your own level so that you avoid overloading. Thanks to this movement, the blood flow and thus the recovery will improve again. You should build up the degree of movement step by step until you no longer have any complaints and are injury-free.
