What is Achilles Pain

The Achilles tendon is the combined tendon of the two calf muscles, the gastrocnemius and soleus.

Despite being the strongest tendon in the body, it can sometimes be overloaded, which causes discomfort and even pain.

There are two main conditions associated with Achilles pain:

  • Insertional Achilles Pain
  • Achilles Inflammation
