Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles Tendinitis is a common condition that causes pain along the back of the leg near the heel. The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the body. It connects your calf muscles to your heel bone and is used when you walk, run and jump.

The Achilles tendon is prone to tenditinitis, a condition associated with overuse and degeneration.
