Achilles Tendon Injury
Achilles tendinitis is a common condition that occurs when the large tendon that runs down the back of the lower leg becomes irritated and inflamed.
The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the body. It connects the calf muscles to the heel bone and is used when you walk, run, climb stairs, jump, and stand on your tip toes. Although the Achilles tendon can withstand great stresses from running and jumping, it is also prone to tendinitis, a condition associated with overuse.
Simply defined, tendinitis, also called tendonitis is acute inflammation of a tendon. Inflammation is the body's natural response to injury and often causes swelling, pain, or irritation. Patients may also come across the term tendinopathy, which is used to describe a condition in which the tendon develops microscopic degeneration as a result of chronic damage over time. Tendinitis, tendinosis, and tendinopathy are all common terms which essentially refer to the same problem.
