Problem the client came in for: The patient came in to our osteopath clinic in Tunbridge Wells for acute Achilles tendon pain caused by rigorous ultra marathon training

Treatment outcome: The patient has had 6 sessions and been performing a strengthening program for the Achilles over the last 8 weeks which has improved the condition massively.

How to avoid this injury: To avoid this don’t forget about strength training when preparing for long distance runs!
