Do I need to change the way I run or my running shoes?

New Running Style for Achilles Tendonitis?

Over-striding – that is landing with your foot too far out in front of your body – can increase the forces through the Achilles Tendon and lead to problems here. Watch the video below for some excellent advice.

The most relevant part to Achilles problems is 4 minutes into the video but the whole thing is well worth watching! Many thanks to Marc Silberman MD for producing such an excellent video.

  • heel-strike braking
  • forefoot landing
  • bent-knee landing
  • heel to butt

New Running Shoes for Achilles Tendonitis?

It is recommended that you change your shoes every 300 to 500 miles.
If your shoes are past this mileage they may not be providing the support and control that they did initially.
This allows your foot to move about more in the shoe and alters your running mechanics.
This can significantly increase the stresses on your Achilles and may be part of the reason you developed Tendonitis in the first place.

It may also be that the shoes you currently use are not best suited to your foot type and style of running.
You may need a shoe that gives you more mid-foot control. This would reduce any excessive pronation taking place.
I would strongly advise taking your old shoes along to a specialist running shop and get some video analysis done to determine what shoes you should be wearing for your running style.

    2. I finally went to a podiatrist (foot doctor) and got specially made shoe inserts. They were not cheap but was well worth the cost.
