About your Condition
Most of our patients typically feel a mild ache or pain in the back of the lower leg or above the heel after exercising. They can also experience tenderness or stiffness in the same area, normally in the morning, which usually improves with moderate movement.
Achilles tendonitis is typically caused by repetitive or intense strain on the Achilles tendon. This tendon is used when you walk, run, jump or push up on your toes. This means it is prone to wear and tear and seems to weaken with age, which can make it more susceptible to injury and can become inflamed.
