Do you have achilles tendon pain running or exercising?
Did you know that achilles pain is one of the most common problems affecting people participating in running and jumping sports?
It often develops gradually over time, so many people continue their running and exercise routines, despite growing achilles problems until their performance and health are substantially reduced. The first symptoms often involve mild achilles tendon stiffness/soreness at the beginning of exercise that goes away. The symptoms might reappear later that day or the next morning with the first steps of walking. This cyclical pattern often worsens over time to a point where pain limits not only exercise but daily activities and function. Research has shown that 6-8 out of 10 athletes reports a spike or change in loading before developing achilles symptoms.
