There are two types of Achilles Pain:
Non-Insertional Achilles Tendinopathy
This type of Achilles pain is caused by the rolling in the foot, also known as excessive pronation.
Insertional Achilles Tendinopathy
For Achilles Pain in this instance, is the rolling out of the foot, known as supination.
Focus on the Foot Structure
With our expertise, we have understood that the foundation of the body is all down to the feet. If the foundation is not in the correct position, then the legs and hips will also become out of alignment.
