Should I see a podiatrist for a sore achilles?

We certainly think so, podiatrists are foot and ankle specialists, so we have a tremendous skill set to help with achilles pain but acute and more chronic. Chronic cases podiatrists can be particularly suited as often these sorts of cases have more biomechanical origins caused by the way someone walks. Podiatrists are specialists in understanding walking and running mechanics so they can help you get to the real cause of your achilles pain.
