Achilles Tendon Pain

The Achilles tendon is one of the longest tendons in your body, stretching from your heel to your calf. This tendon assists in the extension of your foot and allows you to point your toes. When the Achilles tendon is injured or becomes inflamed from tendonitis, it can become extremely painful to put weight on the affected side.

What Causes Achilles Tendon Pain?

Common causes for Achilles tendonitis include:

  • Physical exertion
  • A sharp increase in physical activity
  • Wearing improperly fitted shoes
  • Fallen arches
  • Flat feet

Athletes often experience pain related to Achilles tendon strain due to rapid or repetitive movements. Continuing to play sports without allowing for tendon recuperation can result in a tear or rupture.

Relieving Achilles Tendon Pain

One treatment for Achilles tendonitis is to tape the affected area using sports or kinesiology tape. QUICK TAPE® has alleviated the hassle of applying tape in complex patterns by creating a one-piece strap that supports your arch during walking, running, and jumping. By aligning the foot and taking stress off the knees and hips, QUICK TAPE® support straps can relieve other foot pain issues like plantar fasciitis and arthritis.
