What is Achilles Tendinitis?
Achilles tendinitis implies an inflammatory response, but this isn’t exactly accurate due to there being no real blood supply to the achilles itself, when in reality it is the surrounding areas that become swollen consequently affecting the achilles.
The Achilles tendon is often enlarged, warm and tender approximately 1 to 4 inches above its heel insertion. Sometimes friction is noted with gentle palpation of the tendon during ankle motion.
What are the Symptoms of Achilles Tendinitis?
Common symptoms of Achilles tendinitis include:
- Aching and burning pain, especially with morning activity
- It may improve slightly with initial movement, but becomes worse with further activity
- Pain is aggravated by exercise
- As time passes, less energy output still increases the pain in the tendon
