Achilles Tendonitis is a condition of irritation and inflammation of the large tendon in the back of the ankle. Although it is the largest tendon in the body, it is also the weakest and most prone to injury.
If your calf muscles ache or your Achilles tendon feels swollen or tight, you may be suffering from the condition.
Achilles Tendonitis is an injury caused by overuse of the muscle and usually occurs in middle-aged, athletic people.
The most common cause is over-pronation. Over-pronation occurs in the walking process, when the arch collapses upon weight bearing, adding stress on the Achilles tendon.
Other factors that lead to Achilles Tendonitis are improper shoe selection, inadequate stretching prior to engaging in athletics, a short Achilles tendon, direct trauma (injury) to the tendon, and heel bone deformity.
