Whether it’s a new activity you pick up or you follow the same routine, it is important to remember to take good care of your feet and legs as they might be susceptible to injury at any point. Certain exercises require repetitive motions which may cause Achilles tendon injury and possibly even an Achilles tendon rupture.
Achilles tendon is the region in the back of the leg just below the ankle where several tendons of the leg meet. A large tendon inserts onto the heel, and this particular region hardly receives any blood flow. The inflammation of this tendon results in Achilles Tendinitis, which makes us unable to walk, especially when we get out of bed in the morning. Sometimes, the pain may burn and also shoot up to other parts of the foot. This also causes Achilles tendon rupture.
