Acupuncture for Achilles tendinitis

Achilles tendinitis is an inflammation of the Achilles tendon. The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the body. It connects the calf muscles at the back of the lower leg to your heel bone.
It causes pain along the back of the leg near the heel. This injury is common in runners, especially who have suddenly increased the intensity of their runs.
It is challenging to treat. However, acupuncture is often a successful treatment. It can improve pain and activity in patients with chronic inflammation in the Achilles tendon better than compared with physiotherapy.
Don’t wait till this condition becomes chronic, see what our patients say and start your acupuncture journey today.
Jeremy: Acupuncture helped my back pain
“I haven’t been able to find anyone of Vitalis’ standard” Jeremy Stanford, Melbourne, Australia

I was in Auckland for Christmas last year, on holiday from Australia, and I put my back out so badly I could hardly get off the bed. It was the worst back pain I’d ever experienced. I picked Vitalis out of the phone book and thankfully he was open between Christmas and New Year. He promises that you will feel an improvement after the first treatment, and he lived up to that promise in spades. I was astounded how quickly he was able to relieve the back pain and put me on the path to recovery. With a combination of acupuncture and manipulation, after just two sessions I was feeling 70% back to normal. If I didn’t have to return to Australia, I’m sure he’d have got me back to 100% with another session.

I get regular osteopathic treatment in Melbourne but haven’t been able to find anyone of Vitalis’ standard over here. This year I returned to Auckland and prebooked to see him just to keep my back in order and for him to treat an Achilles problem I have. With acupuncture, he again worked wonders this time on my foot. I’d highly recommend Vitalis to anyone.
