Achilles Tendonitis Pain: Finding Relief with SoftWave Therapy

Published October 21st, 2023 by Dr. Sam Camarata

Achilles tendonitis, characterized by pain and inflammation in the Achilles tendon, is a common ailment that can significantly hinder mobility and quality of life. While traditional treatments often include rest, physical therapy, or medications, SoftWave Therapy stands out as an innovative and effective alternative for addressing Achilles tendonitis pain without invasive procedures or long recovery times. Dr Sam Camarata and his team at Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness have been getting amazing results and feedback from patients who have Achilles pain that utilize SoftWave Therapy. 

Understanding Achilles Tendonitis

The Achilles tendon is the largest and strongest tendon in the human body, connecting the calf muscles to the heel bone. It plays a crucial role in various activities, such as walking, running, and jumping. Achilles tendonitis occurs when this tendon becomes inflamed, usually due to overuse or strain. 

Causes and risk factors for Achilles tendonitis include:

Overuse: Engaging in excessive physical activities without proper conditioning or rest can lead to tendonitis.

Sudden Increases in Activity: A sudden increase in activity levels or intensity can strain the Achilles tendon.

Improper Footwear: Inadequate or ill-fitting footwear can contribute to Achilles tendon issues.

Age: Tendon degeneration becomes more common as individuals age.

Common symptoms of Achilles tendonitis include:

Pain and stiffness in the back of the heel, swelling, and difficulty walking or rising on the toes.

Traditional Treatment Approaches

When faced with Achilles tendonitis, the initial treatment often includes rest, reducing or modifying physical activities, and icing the affected area. Physical therapy exercises to strengthen the calf muscles and improve flexibility may also be recommended. Anti-inflammatory medications or corticosteroid injections may provide temporary relief from pain and inflammation.

In some cases, if conservative measures fail, surgical intervention may be considered to repair the damaged tendon. However, surgery comes with inherent risks and a prolonged recovery period, making it a less appealing option for many patients.

The SoftWave Therapy Advantage

SoftWave Therapy, with its non-invasive and highly effective approach, offers a compelling alternative for those seeking relief from Achilles tendonitis pain. 

Here's how SoftWave Therapy works:

Focused Healing: 

SoftWave Therapy employs electrohydraulic supersonic acoustic waves, which precisely target the affected area. These waves stimulate the body's natural healing processes, enhancing circulation and promoting tissue regeneration.

Pain Relief: 

SoftWave Therapy provides immediate pain relief by reducing inflammation and calming irritated nerve endings. Patients often experience significant pain reduction after just a few sessions.

Improved Range of Motion: 

As inflammation subsides, patients find that their range of motion increases, allowing them to walk and move more comfortably.


Perhaps the most significant advantage of SoftWave Therapy is its non-invasive nature. There are no incisions, anesthesia, or surgical risks involved, making it a safer and more attractive option for many patients.

Long-Lasting Results: 

SoftWave Therapy not only addresses pain and inflammation but also promotes tissue regeneration. This means that the results are often long-lasting, offering enduring relief.

Achilles tendonitis pain can be debilitating, limiting one's ability to perform everyday activities or engage in sports and exercise. While traditional treatments may provide temporary relief, they often fall short of delivering long-term solutions. SoftWave Therapy at Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness, led by Dr. Sam Camarata, offers an innovative and effective alternative that addresses the root cause of Achilles tendonitis pain.

By harnessing the power of electrohydraulic supersonic acoustic waves, SoftWave Therapy promotes natural healing processes, reduces inflammation, and provides lasting pain relief. If you or a loved one is suffering from Achilles tendonitis, consider exploring the benefits of SoftWave Therapy—a non-invasive, safe, and proven approach to regaining mobility and improving your quality of life.
