It is common to get sore throats in connection with physical activity such as running or jumping. For example, the pain may come if you have exercised in a different way than you usually do, or when you have trained a little harder than before.
The trouble is usually called inflammation of the health, although it is not really about inflammation, about the trouble that is caused by repeated minor injuries to the health.
The inconvenience you may have in the beginning rarely lasts longer than a week. Sometimes they can remain for an extended period of time. Most people get better with treatment. The risk of the tendon going off does not increase because you are in pain.
You may also get sore throats as you get older and have gone more than usual, or if you have unsuitable and unsteady shoes. The risk of trouble increases if you are overweight.

Symptoms of Tendinitis
It is common for it to hurt when you have health problems. You may also feel stiff in the heel, ankle, and calf. You can get a swollen lump on the heel, a few centimeters above the heel.
When and where should I seek care?
Contact a health care provider or physiotherapist if you think you have health problems and do not get better in a week. Physical therapists are sometimes also called physiotherapists.
Treatment of Tendinitis
A physical therapist can, among other things, teach you exercises for increased mobility and strength.
In order to avoid long-term problems, it is important to do something about them as early as possible. You should avoid overloading the tendon, and should, for example, refrain from exercising until the trouble has passed. Prescription-free pain tablets can help with pain.
You can think about using sturdy and good shoes, and initially place a post in the shoes under the heel to relieve the tendon.
You may need surgery if you have severe problems and have not been helped by physical therapy. After such an operation, intensive training is usually required for at least six months before you become well.
Influence and participate in your care
You can seek care at any medical center or open specialist clinic you want throughout the country. Sometimes a referral to the open specialized care is required.
You should understand the information
In order for you to be involved in your care and treatment of tendinitis, it is important that you understand the information you receive from the healthcare personnel.
