Achilles Pain

This is pain above your heel and often comes from suddenly starting to move, slowing down or pivoting. It is more common in people who wear high heels as it puts a lot of pressure on the tendon and those with tight calf muscles.

Gentle stretching and wearing shoes with a low heel can be helpful whilst it is healing.

As with other tendon and muscle injuries it is important to strengthen the area as well to help speed up your recovery and prevent if from recurring.

If you have an Achilles tear that is either relatively new or just not healing completely try out the exercises in the video below. With rehab exercises it is important to have no pain with them.
