Achilles Tendonitis

Achilles tendonitis is an inflammatory response to injury of the Achilles tendon. The Achilles tendon (calcaneal tendon) attaches the gastrocnemius, soleus, and plantaris muscles in the calf to the heel bone (calcaneus). It is the largest tendon in the body and is visible at the back of the ankle. Like all tendons, it is made from strong, dense connective fibers. Because of its position and function it is used during walking, running, jumping and similar actions. It is therefore vulnerable to damage from overuse and normal degeneration due to aging.
