Tired of being treated with ultrasound and a laser to treat your Achilles pain?
Well, we have the answer! First, true Achilles tendinitis is not an inflammatory condition! Yes, so why are we taking anti-inflammatory medication and icing this injury? Achilles tendon pain is more of a chronic “degeneration” of the tendon and has been not shown to have inflammatory markers when injured. A recent review of the literature look at the quality of treatments, and it showed the very treatments that many of patients are receiving, have not been proven to work. Ultrasound, laser therapy, and shock wave therapy all do not have strong evidence to support its treatment usage! Why be seen 3x a week for 4 weeks, your standard treatment plan, with these unproven interventions, when you may be able to be treated in fewer sessions, with proven treatments, for less visits? Get the treatment and the best outcome that you deserve and stop wasting time with these unproven treatments!
How do you avoid this wasted time receiving ineffective treatments! Pursuit Physical Therapy! Here, every session is with a board certified specialist for 1 hour of One-on-One care using evidenced based treatments.
This is what one of our patients said who suffered from Achilles Tendinopathy after completing her treatment plan
It is with great pleasure that I highly recommend Dr. Ron Miller as your next Physical Therapist! I am 42 years old, a mom of 2, and running enthusiast. I have had a plethora of running injuries and have been to just about every “big” orthopedic and physical therapy group in Orlando. I have suffered for years with plantar fasciitis in both feet, hip problems, a chronic hamstring strain and, most recently, pain in my Achilles. I have done and tried everything…from ordering supplements online, spending countless hours searching for solutions on the internet, spending money on shoes, inserts, massage equipment, and even a personal ultrasound wand. Just when I was about to give up the activity I love the most, Dr. Miller was recommended to me by two individuals I highly respect; one a personal trainer in the Orlando area, and the other a physical therapy student.
What makes Dr. Miller’s approach different is his ability to highly personalize a treatment plan. I was so tired of being just a “body” going through the system; each approach to injuries the same. The focus was always on getting over the injury…but never permanently assessing what caused the injury in the first place, and fixing that. I was tired of medical personnel telling me to “just swim!” or worse…stop running forever. Dr. Miller believed in me, and in my ability to begin running again pain free. He is thorough, thoughtful, intelligent, and capable. He is constantly checking in with me via email and text to make sure I am following our plan, and feeling good. We have been working together for about 2 months, and I see so much improvement! Although my recovery isn’t totally complete, I can honestly say this is the best I have felt in years. Let me repeat that…years. I am able to run short distances pain free! An incredible victory! I know that as I continue to get stronger and add mileage, Dr. Miller will be cheering me on; that kind of care and encouragement is unique to him, and hard to find. I am so grateful I did!
