What is it?
Achilles Tendonitis is an overuse injury of the achilles tendon. This condition usually comes on as a result of overuse without stretching.
It often results in pain with stepping near the heel, but can also cause pain anywhere along the achilles tendon. This condition usually comes on due to sudden onset of running, increasing frequency, duration or distance too rapidly.
If left untreated, this condition can turn into a chronic tendinosis, making recovering and decreasing pain more difficult.
