Achilles Tendonitis

Achilles tendonitis causes inflammation and degeneration of the achilles tendon. The achilles tendon is the large tendon located in the back of the leg that inserts into the heel. Pain can develop gradually without a history of trauma. Achilles tendonitis should should always be treated as there is a possibility that the tendon can become weak and ruptured. Achilles Tendonitis can be caused by excessive stress to the tendon by sports or running, as well as prolonged periods of standing. Symptoms of achilles tendonitis often begin as a mild ache in the back of the leg or above the heel after running or other sports activity. Episodes of more severe pain may occur after prolonged running, stair climbing or sprinting. Individuals who suffer from achilles tendonitis often complain that their first steps out of bed in the morning are extremely painful. Another common complaint is pain after steps are taken after long periods of sitting. This pain often lessens with activity.

The most common cause of achilles tendonitis is over-pronation. Over-pronation occurs when the arch collapses upon weight bearing, adding stress on the achilles tendon. Other factors that lead to achilles tendonitis are improper shoe selection, inadequate stretching before sports, a short achilles tendon, direct trauma to the tendon, and heel bone deformity.
