Achilles tendonitis or achilles strain is an inflammation of the Achilles tendon, the tendon that connects your calf muscle to your heal bone. Overuse may cause this inflammation, and inflammation can be chronic. Some factors that may contribute to Achilles strain are walking or running up hill or on hard surfaces, or training too hard. Carrying too much weight or wearing high heels may also aggravate it.
