Achilles Tendinopathy - Leaflet

Achilles tendinopathy is a condition that causes pain, swelling, stiffness and weakness of the Achilles tendon. It is thought to be caused by repeated tiny injuries (known as microtrauma) to the Achilles tendon. After each injury, the tendon does not heal completely, as should normally happen. This means over time, damage to the Achilles tendon builds up and Achilles tendinopathy can develop.
