What is achilles tendonitis?

Achilles tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendons which connect the heel bone and the lower back of the leg. It can be quite painful and make it difficult to walk or move about unaided, but can also be mistaken for other problems and injuries, which can make it difficult to treat. You don’t want to misdiagnose a broken or sprained ankle for Achilles tendonitis, just as you wouldn’t want to misdiagnose the other way around. It is best to know how to recognise Achilles tendonitis straight away, so that you can get treated for the correct problem right away.

  • Is the leg stiff or tender? With Achilles tendonitis your ankle will feel quite stiff throughout the day, but will be more so in the morning than later in the day. Bear in mind that this pain may actually get worse throughout the day if your injury is more severe.
  • Does the leg hurt to touch? The leg may be quite sensitive to touch, or might even flare up with pain if touched even gently. Feel if the skin there feels warm or swollen, as this is another sign of Achilles tendonitis.
  • Can you move your ankle around? If your ankle cannot move around in a circle, or even from side to side, then this is a definitely sign of an injury to your Achilles tendon.
  • Is your leg weak? Weakness, particularly in the ankle, seems to be a sign of Achilles tendonitis. This may make it difficult to do any exercise, but will also affect your ability to walk comfortably.
  • Does the pain disappear during exercise? Strangely, Achilles tendonitis can make it difficult to move around altogether, or may ease up during physical activity, only to return as painful as ever once activity has ceased.
