Achilles tendonitis is a painful and often debilitating inflammation of the Achilles tendon, also called the Achilles tendon.

This tendon is a large expanse of calf muscles two older and runs down the back of the leg attached to the heel bone or calcaneus. Injury to this important tendon can make it difficult or even impossible to walk. The problem can be caused by a sudden incident, as a single bound, but more commonly is
the result of an accumulation of small strains that produce small tears in the tendon over time. In most cases, the onset of symptoms is gradual. The discomfort may be relatively minor at first, but gradually
becomes worse if the patient tries to “work through” the pain. Many suffer from Achilles tendinitis attribute their initial discomfort of aches and pains that come with age and fatigue. In severe cases, complete
tendon rupture may occur, resulting in a traumatic injury and severe pain. These injuries can make walking virtually impossible, and may even require corrective surgery.
