foot and ankle problems

Tendinitis is inflammation or irritation of a tendon. While tendinitis can occur in any of your body's tendons, in the feet it is most common over the achilles tendon (heel), tibialis posterior tendon (in flat feet) and peroneal tendons (ankle instability).  Pain may be within the tendon itself or at the insertion of the tendon to bone (insertional tendinitis).


The condition causes pain and tenderness just outside a joint. It may be associated with swelling and redness overlying the skin.


               Shock Wave Therapy

           Radiofrequency Coblation

The goals of tendinitis treatment are to relieve your pain and reduce inflammation.

Anti-inflammatory medicines.
Taking NSAIDs or COX2 inhibitors may relieve discomfort associated with tendinitis. Topical creams with anti-inflammatory medication may also be effective in relieving pain without the potential side effects of taking anti-inflammatory medications by mouth.

Corticosteroids must not be injected in the tendon.  This will weaken the tendon leading to rupture.  At KLFAC, we prefer injections of biological material such as concentrated cytokines and stem cells.



Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)
ESWT delivers shock waves to the inflamed tendon.  It increases blood flow to the affected area and promotes healing.  Usually 4 – 6 sessions will be required and predetermined intervals .

Depending on the severity of your tendon injury, surgical debridement (cleaning up) and radiofreqency coblation therapy may be required
