Achilles Tendon TREATMENT

How Shapecrunch's Custom Insoles and Sandals provide the best Achilles Tendon treatment?

100% Customisation possible with Shapecrunch's advance technology

Achilles tendon is the region in the back of the leg just below the ankle where several tendons of the leg meet. Achilles Tendon treatment requires tension relief

Pain in the Achilles tendon region can be relieved by relieving pressure from the tendon. This is done by raising the heel in sandals and orthotics so that pressure is relieved from the back and distributed to the forefoot.

Tibial Tendonitis

Really love their insoles and have been using them for over a year...they are invaluable for my mild tibial tendonitis. A year ago it was severe and these soles were the only way I could walk! Ordering was easy (from running labs, Indiranagar) and delivery was prompt. I am now on my second pair. Good job team and keep up the good work.

Achilles Tendonitis

I have currently an Achilles tendon issue. The first pair I received was good but not adapted to my problem. The customer service sent me new one for free with an adapted heel. This company is the first one doing such an effort to satisfy customers. Quality of the insoles, fast delivery, easy to order. You can order eyes closed.

Heel Pain

I was suffering from acute heel pain and with 2-3 days of wearing these insoles the pain has vanished! This is an awesome product and I use it everyday for 8-10 hours.

Strongly recommend Shape crunch insoles to anyone with foot issues.

Heel Cup for Heel Pain relief


Apart from using insoles or customized footwear, the following remedies are useful too


Apply ice pack on the back of the heel and all over the heel area.

Use essential oils to massage the area - use lavender, coconut, and rosemary oil as it would reduce the pain due to their anti-inflammatory properties

Epsom salt (magnesium sulphate) add some Epsom salt in lukewarm  water and dip your feet in the water and massage them gently

Use apple cider vinegar as it would help to take excessive calcium out of the bones and provide relief to the foot.
