The Achilles tendon stretches all the way from the bones of your heel up to your calf muscles, making it the largest tendon in your body.
An injury to your Achilles tendon can happen to people of all ages and lifestyles.
Achilles tendinitis is an injury in which the tendon is inflamed and causes much pain to the area.
Relieving Achilles tendon pain can be found in numerous different ways including rest from movement that is aggravating the tendon, icing the area, as well as stretching. Surgery may be necessary for severe Achilles tendon injuries.
If the pain of your Achilles tendon is severe and you are finding no relief, be sure to contact Dr. Herbold.
