Achilles Tendinosis Research Articles

 The largest tendon in the body which connects the upper calf muscles to the back of the heel bone is known as Achilles tendon. The condition in which the Achilles tendon degenerates and becomes inflamed is known as Achilles tendinosis. This type of condition is more commonly seen in athletes, runners, and people who have calf tightness and it may occur in the middle of the tendon which connects to the heel bone. Many patients suffering from this Achilles tendinosis will have pain and tightness in the tendon behind the ankle. In addition, insertional Achilles tendinosis often is associated with a heel bone spur. X-rays can be taken to see the bone spurs.
