Achilles Tendonitis

What causes Achilles Tendinosis?

Most times Achilles Tendinosis is normally caused by overuse amongst athletes and heavy runners.  This is not always the case though and Achilles pain requires careful assessment and management. Due to the poor blood supply of tendons this can be a stubborn slow healing injury so careful identification of the causes of the injury such as tight calves, over training, wearing the wrong types of shoes and foot structure is critical to reducing the pain.
