Achilles tendinitis is an overuse injury of the tendon, the band of tissue that connects calf muscles at the back of the lower leg to your heel bone.
There are two types of Achilles tendonitis:
Noninsertional Achilles tendinitis: Middle portion of Achilles tendon
Insertional Achilles tendinitis: Lower portion of Achilles tendon
At Home podiatry there are a range of treatments that can help relieve symptoms and reduce flare-ups. The choice of treatment will often depend on the patient’s severity of pain.
