What is Achilles tendonitis?

Your Achilles tendon runs down the back of your leg, from your heel up through the calf. When the tendon becomes inflamed or irritated, it is known as tendonitis. If you feel pain and soreness in the back of your lower leg, you likely have Achilles tendonitis.

Who suffers from Achilles tendonitis?

Lower leg injuries most commonly occur in athletes. Runner, dancers, and anyone who plays sports like basketball, soccer, or football run the risk of developing Achilles tendonitis. If you run, jump, or walk, you can develop a lower leg injury.

Why does my Achilles tendon hurt?

You may develop Achilles tendonitis from exercise or sports-related injuries. The tendon may develop a tear or strain if used excessively or while bearing too heavy a load. Overtraining for a big event can quickly lead to an injury.

How can Achilles tendonitis be prevented?

Taping can help strengthen and support sore muscles or muscles prone to injury. If you have had Achilles tendonitis in the past, your muscles are prone to reinjury.

Applying kinetic tape can lift the skin, making space between the skin and muscle, leading to pain relief. Using tape in the right place can relax muscles.
