Achilles Tendonitis

What is Achilles Tendonitis?

Achilles tendonitis is tendonitis of the Achilles tendon, which is the large tendon at the back of the ankle just below the calf muscle. This condition generally has two main causes, one by overuse of the affected limb and is more common among athletes training in a non - ideal, strenuous condition. And two by an injury of the lower limb (Achilles tendon). There have also been a few cases where it has been caused by improper or poorly fitted footwear.
