Diagnosis of achillodynia

The magnetic resonance imaging shows achillodynia. The swelling and pathological changes in the tendon sliding tissue around the Achilles tendon are clearly visible

Achillodynia - degenerative pain in the Achilles tendon - is a warning sign that indicates overloading of the Achilles tendon at an early stage. The complaints are based on degeneration processes within the tendon.

Most patients with Achilles tendonitis are between 35 and 45 years of age. It mostly affects men.

Primary achillodynia is usually clearly identifiable and presents no difficulties in diagnosis. However, it can be challenging to pinpoint the specific stage.

In the case of secondary achillodynia caused by other orthopedic or rheumatological factors, identifying these causes can be challenging. However, this detailed examination is necessary in order to finally find an effective treatment approach for chronic Achilles tendonitis.
