Achilles Tendon Overuse?

When you're suffering from an overused achilles tendon, you experience a lot of pain in the tendon that runs from the calf muscle to the heel. There can be several causes that explain an overused achilles tendon. For example, a deviating foot position (overpronation, underpronation), leg length discrepancy, old age, training on a hard surface, shoes with poor shock-absorption or prolonged overuse. Overusage is mainly caused by activities such as running and jumping.
