Managing Achilles injuries in 2022: Everything you have been doing wrong and why you're not pain free yet.
"The Achilles is the strong, fibrous tissue (think thick, powerful rubber band) that runs from the base of your heel and inserts into the muscles throughout the back of your calf, mainly the soleus and gastrocnemius muscles.
The main role of the tendon is to store and release energy throughout our walking and running gait. It is because of this, and the loads going through it, that the achilles tendon is the largest and strongest tendon in the human body."
"Too often we see tendon pain disregarded as “only a niggle” at first. Yet pain is the achilles’s way of telling you that it is not coping with the current demands and they need to change.
Addressing this early can mean a quicker recovery without drastic changes to activity and routine.
However if neglected, this can lead to longer periods of time off activity and a more prolonged recovery outlook."
