Achilles Tendonitis

The Achilles tendon is fibrous tissue that connects the heel to the calf muscle. Leg muscles are the most powerful muscle group in the body and the Achilles tendon is the thickest and strongest tendon in the body. Contracting the calf muscles pulls the Achilles tendon, which pushes the foot downward. This contraction helps with walking, running, and jumping. Overuse, misalignment, improper footwear, medication side effects, and/or accidents can all result in Achilles tendonitis. An ankle support/brace is often the most helpful way to start the healing process; we carry several braces that can help support Achilles Tendonitis injuries.
