Achilles tendinopathy is a common injury seen in sports involving running and jumping. It is an overuse injury of the Achilles Tendon.
Where and what is the Achilles Tendon?
The Achilles tendon is a large tendon at the back of the lower leg, just above the heel bone. It attaches the two calf muscles (gastrocnemius and soleus) to the heel bone (calcaneus). Its function is to "push off" during walking and running and enable us to rise up onto our tiptoes.
