Issues with the Achilles Tendinitis

Post by George Payan »

Athletes having issues with the heel bone (Achilles Tendinitis), it's an inflammation of the Achilles tendon. The Achilles is the large tendon connecting the two major calf muscles, the gastrocnemius and the soleus. The tendon is under too much stress, the tendon tightens and is forced to work too hard. Inflamed Achilles (that's tendinitis), over time, can produce a covering of scar tissue, which is less flexible than the tendon. If the inflamed Achilles tendon continues to be stressed, it can tear or rupture.

Symptoms of an Achilles Tendinitis: Dull or sharp pain anywhere along the back of the tendon, it's close to the heel. Symptoms include limited ankle flexibility. Redness or heat over the painful area. A nodule (a lumpy buildup of scar tissue) that can be felt on the tendon (heel area). A cracking sound (scar tissue rubbing against the tendon) when the ankle moves.

The causes of Achilles Tendinitis: Tight or fatigued calf muscles, this can be brought on by not stretching the calves properly, increasing mileage too quickly or simply overtraining. Excessive hill running or speedwork, both of which stresses the Achilles to twist and causes some cases. Runners who overpronate (their feet rotate too far inward on impact) are most susceptible to Achilles tendinitis. Understanding the Cause is Important for Full Recovery you need to stop the aggravating activity and rest your ankle to start recovering,
