Drysdale Osteopathy Glasgow

Can I give six stars? David is a true professional who has helped me through challenging times of severe neck and shoulder pain to a place of real comfort and being able to get on with life. David talks you through everything and will advise not to continue treatment if you no longer need it. I will be back in the future (hopefully not too soon!) and I would not hesitate to recommend him - I have passed his name on to many people already.

Drysdale Osteopathy • Achilles Tendonitis

Calf Pain, Achilles TendonitisIf the achilles tendon is affected by overuse, and then rest may be the best solution.

Frequently, though, the biomechanics of the foot are to blame. When the arch of the foot is lost, so is the spring in the foot when walking or running.

There is a ligament in the foot called the "Spring Ligament" and it's action is to work in recoil to loads that are applied when walking or running. When the arch is lost, the spring ligament can't work.

Muscles, such as the tibialis posterior have to take on the job of the spring ligament, and become overused.

Theses muscles then develop trigger points and refer pain such as this.

Treatment of these trigger points and having orthotics fitted will often solve this problem.
