What Is Achilles Tendonitis?

Achilles tendonitis often causes inflammation and pain in the back of your ankle. It stems from your Achilles tendon, which runs down the back of your leg to your heel. The largest tendon in your body, the Achilles tendon necessary for almost every movement, from running and walking to jumping and climbing stairs.

Symptoms of Achilles tendonitis include pain anywhere along the large tendon, but it’s most common near your heel or ankle. Afterward, you may experience other symptoms, such as:

Untreated, severe tendonitis can lead to a ruptured Achilles tendon. You may have a rupture if you hear a sudden popping sound followed by sharp pain. You won’t be able to support yourself on the leg with a ruptured Achilles tendon. Seek medical attention immediately.
