Achilles tendinopathy is a common overuse injury affecting both athletes and the general population, leading to symptoms of pain, swelling and stiffness. The Achilles tendon originates from the calf muscles (gastrocnemius and soleus) and inserts into the heel bone of the foot. (refer to image below). Overuse can cause damage to the tendon, which may ultimately lead to pain and stiffness.
