With spring in the air and summer just around the corner, runners, golfers, and athletes of all kinds are back out doing what they love. Unfortunately, injuries are common with the start of a new season or throughout a lengthy season. One common injury during this time of year is Achilles Tendonitis.
Your Achilles tendon connects your calf muscles (gastrocnemius and soleus) to your heel. It is the strongest, largest, and most frequently injured tendon in your body because it is used every time you push off to take a step. When this tendon becomes irritated or inflamed the condition is called Achilles Tendonitis.
