Achilles Tendonitis (Introduction)


Achilles tendonitis is inflammation of the Achilles tendon, the giant calf tendon at the bottom of the back of the leg.


Posterior or retrocalcaneal bursitis is a different problem in this same area and sometimes difficult to distinguish from tendonitis.


Achilles area problems are common, but they occur less frequently than knee overuse problems.
