Achilles tendinopathy is a condition affecting the Achilles tendon, which is the largest and strongest tendon in the human body. This tendon connects the calf muscles to the heel bone, allowing for movements like walking, running, and jumping.
Achilles tendinopathy occurs when the tendon becomes irritated, inflamed, or degenerated due to overuse or repetitive strain, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced functionality. The condition is commonly seen in athletes, particularly runners, who place significant stress on the tendon.
Factors that can contribute to Achilles tendinopathy include excessive training, improper footwear, tight or weak calf muscles, and biomechanical imbalances.
