Heel Pain


Achilles Tendonitis

Achilles tendonitis is diagnosed by a history and physical examination of the patient who describes pain at the back of the ankle with walking and/or running activities. The pain generally will be associated with an increase in running or jumping intensity or frequency. The pain from Achilles tendonitis is often so severe that running is impossible and even walking is uncomfortable.
