  • Achilles TendonitisAchilles tendonitis is a common condition among athletes. It occurs when the large tendon that runs down the back of your lower leg becomes irritated and inflamed either due to an acute injury or, more commonly, with overuse. The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the body and connects the calf muscles to the heel. The tendon is used for push-off strength, balance, and power while standing, walking, running, and jumping. Inflammation of the tendon can occur at the junction between the muscle and tendon, at the tendon itself, or at its attachment to the heel bone.
