Achilles Tendonitis Tendonopathy
Achilles tendinopathy is due to the irritation of the Achilles tendon, or heel cord. This condition can occur following a single injury but is most commonly associated with repetitive irritation and microtrauma to the tissues. It may occur in runners who suddenly increase the duration or intensity of their runs or middle-aged people who play sports only on the weekends.
Typical symptoms include:
- Tenderness in the heel or calf with pressure
- Pain and stiffness with movement and activity
- Tightness in the calf
- Swelling in the back of the ankle
