Does this sound like you – “My achilles feels really tight & aches a lot. The tendon actual feels a little swollen. I get up the morning & can’t put my heel on the ground. I feels so tight I’m worried it might snap. The more activity I do the worse it is & I’ve had to stop walking & running.”
Pain around the ankle & achilles tendon is very common but can really limit your activity levels. There are 2 locations for achilles tendon pain – in the middle of your tendon or where the tendon attaches to the heel bone. Each location of pain needs to be treated quite differently hence getting an accurate diagnosis is crucial.
