An Achilles Tendon Strain is a common injury occurring in the Achilles Tendon, the largest tendon in the body that connects the heel to the calf muscles. Whilst very strong, the tendon is not flexible unless conditioned. This means anyone from an athlete to someone going about their everyday life can be affected by a strain. A strain occurs when the tendon is inflamed. Common types of inflamed tendon include Tendonitis and Tendinosis.
