  • Difficulty flexing the affected foot

How To Diagnose Achilles Tendonitis

A physical exam is helpful when diagnosing Achilles tendonitis. Your podiatrist may ask you to balance on the balls of your feet while responding to commands that are meant to test your range of motion as well as your flexibility. The source of tenderness and swelling can by diagnosed by probing the affected area. In some cases, your doctor may order scans such as an x-ray, MRI, or ultrasound to confirm the diagnosis.

  • Regular stretching
  • Strengthening the calf muscles
