About Achilles Tendinitis
Achilles Tendinitis Heel Pain Prevention and Relief
Achilles Tendinitis occurs when your achilles tendon, located in the back of your leg where different tendons meet, is inflamed. When this tendon is inflamed, it becomes very difficult to walk, especially in the morning when getting out of bed. Standing, running, and jumping aggravates the condition.
The pain cause by Achilles Tendinitis may burn, pierce or shoot off to other parts of the foot or leg. Achilles Tendinitis may precede a rupture of the tendon which requires surgery.
