Achilles Tendonitis is a Common Running Injury

Blog Category:
Comments (0)

Achilles Tendinitis is one of the most common running injuries because Achilles Tendinitis is usually caused by a sudden increase of repetitive activity involving the Achilles tendon. This type of activity puts major stress on the tendon, leading to an injury of the tendon. Continual stress on the tendon, like running or training for a race, prevents the body from repairing the injured tissue. Ultimately, the tendon structure is altered causing continual pain. Athletes are not the only individuals that are at high risk for developing this disorder.

Dr. Jason Knox discusses more information about this common running injuries and why most runners end up with this diagnosis. Achilles Tendinitis is something that should be properly treated and not ignored, especially if you are a runner or training for some kind of athletic event, because this could cause further injury to your Achilles tendon and may even require surgery. Visit our Achilles Tendinitis page to learn more information about this condition or visit our common sports injuries section to learn about other problems that may arise.
