Understanding Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles tendinitis is a common condition that occurs when the Achilles tendon, a thick band of tissue that connects your calf muscles to your heel bone, becomes inflamed. This condition is often characterized by pain, swelling, and stiffness in the back of the heel.

Causes of Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles tendinitis can be caused by various factors, including overuse or repetitive strain on the tendon, sudden increase in physical activity, improper footwear, tight calf muscles, and poor biomechanics.

Diagnosis and Assessment

At Hello Physio, our expert practitioners conduct a thorough evaluation to diagnose Achilles tendinitis accurately. This may involve a physical examination, imaging tests such as ultrasound or MRI, and assessment of your medical history and activity level.
