Achilles Tendinopathy

Achilles tendinopathy is often referred to as Achilles tendonitis, is a common ailment that affects the Achilles tendon, the large tendon that connects the calf muscles to the heel bone. Achilles tendinopathy typically develops due to overuse, injury, or degeneration of the tendon, causing pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility in the affected area.

The hallmark symptom of Achilles tendinopathy is pain and tenderness in the back of the heel or just above it. This condition can range from mild discomfort to severe pain that interferes with daily activities and exercise. It is frequently seen in athletes who engage in repetitive activities like running and jumping, as well as in individuals who wear inappropriate footwear or have certain structural foot issues.
