Achilles Tendinopathy

Do you suffer from pain above the heel? Do you feel your calf muscles are very tight?

Achilles tendon is a tendon which connects the calf muscle to the heel bone. This tendon can undergo stress due to tightness in calf muscles causing stretching of the tendon. Striation of the tendon can be painful and cause inflammation.
