The Achilles tendon is the largest and strongest tendon in the human body. Achilles tendinopathy is among the most common musculoskeletal injuries, especially in athletes and weekend warriors in running activities.
Common symptoms are:
Pain and stiffness at the back of your heel during first steps when you get of
bed or after a period of rest or inactivity.
The tendon at the back of the ankle may be warm and tender to touch.
The tendon may be swollen or thickened in appearance.
Limited range of movement of the ankle. (Dorsi Flexion)
