Arthritic foot problems commonly show up differently than arthritis in other parts of the body. For example, achilles tendinitis is known to be caused from stress on calf muscles and Achilles tendon. This strong tendon usually gets inflamed while playing sports such as basketball or tennis. Moderate pain is experienced when the tendon gets irritated . Elio’s staff recommends prompt treatment to help relieve the tendinitis. If the Achilles tendon is overstretched it could rupture. When the Achilles tendon ruptures, a feeling of sudden pop followed by sharp pain is experienced. It becomes very challenging to walk if the Achilles tendon is ruptured.
