Achilles Tendonitis

What is it?

The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in your body and is responsible for connecting the calf muscles to the heel bone. Micro-tears in the tendon, called tendonitis, can result in stiffness, tenderness and pain.

Why do I have it?

Caused by repetitive or intense strain on the Achilles tendon. Typically an injury resulting from overuse or intense strain and may be associated with age related factors.

When does it hurt?

Pain typically begins as a mild ache in the back of the leg or above the heel after running or other activity.

The Bracing Experts Advice:

Braces involving a combination of heel-lifts and compression are used to reduce stress placed on the Achilles tendon.
