Do you have pain that is located in the back of your heel? You might be affected by Achilles Tendinitis. This is the inflammation of your Achilles tendon that runs behind the ankle and onto the back of the heel bone.
This condition is most common in those people who run or walk a lot or have tight tendons. It occurs when the tendon is strained over time. It causes the fibers to tear/stretch along its length and it leads to pain, inflammation and the possibility of a bone spur growth on the back of the heel bone.
