Achilles tendinopathy refers to pain in the Achilles tendon. The Achilles tendon is a thick band which connects the calf muscles to the heel. This tendon is placed under significant load during sports involving repeated impact work, especially jumping movements. However, many non-sports men and women can also develop an Achilles tendinopathy due to repetitive activities.
