Achilles Tendonitis is typically a condition related to overuse and not an acute injury. NOTE: If you experience a pop at the back of your calf or heel, immediately see a doctor as this could be a ruptured or torn achilles tendon. If you've dramatically increased your activity level and are experiencing sharp pains along the back of your calf and heel, this could be a sign of achilles tendonitis. Other symptons include: Pain and stiffness along the vack of the heel and calf on a morning / Pain in the area worsens with activity / Thickening of the tendon / Swelling that is present at all times but worsens throughout the day. The good news is that many cases of achilles tendonitis are successfully treated through non-interventional means - complete rest from high impact activities is strongly recommende as well as icing for no more than 20 minutes at a time several times a day. Tight calves are often a cause of achilles tendonitis and your orthopaedic specialist may suggest some calf stretches as part of rehabilitation. If there is no improvement in 6 months, your doctor may review and recommend surgery.
