Achilles pain/tendinopathy

Another type of injury that can be caused by overuse, achilles pain (or tendinopathy) affects the achilles tendon at the back of your foot. Symptoms can include pain in your heels, tender and warm achilles tendon, and difficulty when walking – in some cases the pain can make walking impossible. While some cases are quite minor (caused by light injury or overuse) a severe case can mean a ruptured achilles tendon.
