What Is Achilles Pain?

The heel cord at the back of the ankle is named after the Greek demi-god Achilles. 

This cord is the strongest tendon in the body, but its name is a reference to the injury that leads to Achilles' demise;  Unlike the warrior Achilles pain traditionally comes from a simple yank or a repetitive arch drop when landing. 

Both complaints can cause chronic discomfort; these distresses are often described as anything from tightness through to sharp pain

Yanks or tendon pulls hard to stop, but the compounding repetitive arch drop (foot over-pronation) is easy to stop! - see the Orthotic Fitting Centre

Tendonitis is, simply put, inflammation of a tendon cord and inflammation means damage. 

If you have been diagnosed with Achilles tendonitis, it says you have damaged your Achilles tendon, and it needs to heal correctly. 

At the London Foot Pain Clinic, we first give you a three-point exam and then put you on a unique Achilles Protocol.
