Achilles Tendon Pain
Rehabilitation is key to a successful return to sport following an achilles tendon injury. A painful achilles tendon is a common injury in runners, hikers and walkers. Rest alone is NEVER the answer as the pain will still be there when you return to your activity again. Being a Specialised Lower Limb Rehab Clinic in South Dublin, we are here to thoroughly assess your achilles injury, guiding you back to your sport or recreational activity.

Achilles Rehab : The 5 Phases
Our achilles rehab process involves 5 distinct phases. The work completed in each phase helps to prepare the individual for the next phase. You cannot skip phases!
Achilles rehabilitation is criteria-driven, not time-driven. This means that you will work towards meeting specific targets in each phase. If you don't put in the work in one phase, you will not be ready or able to move to the next. This process is proven to work and it ensures that we leave no stone unturned & that nothing gets missed during your rehabilitation.
We understand that being injured can be tough. There will be challenging periods throughout rehab, but we are here to guide you the entire way. Think about rehab as being an opportunity to come out the other side, physically & mentally stronger than your were pre-injury.
Ultimately, the goal of achilles rehab is not only to be back running or playing sport in a few weeks or months time, but to still be playing sport with healthy achilles in 5 and 10 years time. With this in mind, we have refined our rehab process over the past 15 years, to ensure that you receive the latest evidence-based treatment & high quality exercise prescription.
The 5 phases of rehabilitation are outlined below. We initially reduce your pain, followed by building strength and regaining the tendon's ability to act like a spring. Most people can still continue to run in some capacity, whilst rehabbing their injury.
" I had a long-standing achilles tendon injury which was preventing me from run training for competing in triathlon. Declan started with an in-depth information gathering exercise, then did extensive performance testing and run-specific strengthening exercises. He also gave me a wealth of information during our sessions which was a big help, as I look upon these sessions as educational for me as well as fixing the immediate problem. I was delighted with the service and the outcome, and I would highly recommend Buan Physio to my friends and family. "
