Achilles tendon is the tendon which is attached from calf muscles to the heel bone. When there is sudden increase in intensity of physical training or excessive training load on the calf muscles, the tendon may not be able to adapt to the increased demand. This can lead to micro-tears and degeneration of the tendon, which may lead to Achilles tendinopathy.
