What should I do in case of an Achilles tendon injury?

It is important for your own recovery that you visit a sports or doctor for a correct diagnosis. Together with your doctor you can draw up a treatment plan, in which the Herzog PRO Compressionsocks can play an important role.

What are the causes of an Achilles tendon injury?

Many athletes and especially runners sooner or later have to deal with pain in the Achilles tendon. Often an Achilles tendon injury occurs due to overload. There are several factors that can cause Achilles tendon complaints:

  • Overload due to increasing the training intensity too quickly. Many runners are often too fanatical in expanding their training kilometers.
  • The prolonged or monotonous loading of your tendons. As a result, the quality and elasticity of your Achilles tendon can decrease, eventually causing tissue damage.
  • Overpronation, weak calf muscles or wearing the wrong sports shoes. By training on shoes that do not fit your foot type and training load, the load on your Achilles tendon can become too great.
How do I prevent an Achilles tendon injury?

Preventing an Achilles tendon injury starts with the warm up. Make sure that your calf muscles warm up well after which you can quietly build up your training kilometers.

Also make sure that your calf muscles are well developed with specific exercises for the calf, but also massaging the calf muscles and achills tendon is important. The blood flow to your tissues increases, reducing muscle cramps and promoting recovery.

Wearing high socks /socks against cooling the tendon is very important, which is why the Herzog PRO Compressionsocks have a double function.
