Hi, I'm not a runner anymore but I have a chronic inflamation of both Achilles tendos probably caused by the Hauglund Syndrome (calcifications at the back of the ankles), which is killing me. :( I've had it for more than 10 years and never been able to treat it properly. Been told that the only option at this advanced stage is surgery by an orthopedic, but an Italian podiatrist has suggested to try with a multi-pronged approach of shock wave terapy, insoles made to measure and suitable shoes.
I'm looking for a good podiatrist in the Leeds / West Yorkshire area who could help me.
Sorry for the spelling mistakes, I'm Italian and trying to translate medical language.
Thanks for your help :)

That's interesting Summerfield I'm looking to relocate back to the North and I'd like a second opinion on my orthotics as all the muscles on my left side still get much tigher than on my right.

I think I have the same problem, but I do not have the option of a local running shop as I'm on the Isle of Wight. I've got a physio appointment, so I'll see what they say. Till then It's just cycling I guess.

I was on the Isle of Wight last weekend - did think of you runnerman - where do you normally get your running shoes then? A friends of mine lives in East Cowes he has a friend on the Island who is a podiatrist.

Rude podiatrist - beware

I saw this Matthew Malone mid last year in Rusholme, very condescending and told me my ankle was 'crap' - yes, his exact words. When the equipment he was using failed to operate he blamed the NHS and gave me a five minute spiel about why I should go private. Snorted through his nose at my postcode. Very unpleasant. Avoid.
