Cause #2: Achilles Tendonitis
Achilles Tendonitis is the second most common cause of heel and foot pain. The pain can go up the back of the ankle when walking or running. It is an irritation of the Achilles tendon (the largest and strongest tendon in our body), a thick band of tissue along the back of the lower leg that connects the calf muscles to the heel. How do you know if you have Achilles tendonitis? There will be: • Tenderness in the heel or higher up in the Achilles tendon
• Tightness in the ankle • Tightness in the calf • Swelling in the back of the ankle • Pain in the back of the heel when walking or running
