Achillis Tendonitis

Achilles Tendonitis/Tendinitis
When the Achilles tendon becomes injured or inflamed it is commonly known as Achilles tendonitis.
Achilles tendonitis is an overuse injury that is common especially to joggers and jumpers, due to the repetitive action and so may occur in other activities that requires the same repetitive action.

Achilles tendonitis may be felt as a burning pain at the beginning of activity, which gets less during activity and then worsens following activity.  The tendon may feel stiff first thing in the morning or at the beginning of exercise.
