What is Achilles Tendonitis?

The Achilles tendon is a large tendon that connects from your calf muscle to your heel. It is subject to a person’s entire body weight with each step. Depending upon the speed, stride, terrain and additional weight being carried or pushed, the Achilles tendon may be subject to up to 3-12 times a person’s body weight during a sprint or push off.

Achilles Tendonitis Symptoms

Achilles Tendonitis can be triggered by activities that repeatedly place stress on the tendon, causing painful inflammation. Achilles Tendonitis also can cause soreness and stiffness in the tendon, which left untreated, will continue to swell and possibly be susceptible to rupture.

Who suffers from Achilles Tendonitis injury?

Individuals who experience over-pronation(flat foot or fallen arch) in their step increase stress on the tendon causing the arch to collapses under ones weight. Other factors that lead to Achilles Tendonitis are overuse from excessive exercise, poor stretching prior to engaging in athletics, or direct damage (injury) to the tendon, and inappropriate footwear.
