The Achilles tendon is the largest and most powerful tendon in the human body. The Achilles tendon is located at the back of the lower leg. The tendon connects the calf muscle to the heel bone, the heel of the foot. Thanks to this tendon, we can push ourselves hard when running, climbing stairs and jumping. In short, this large tendon is an extremely important tendon in our daily existence. You will only notice how important this tendon is for your daily functioning if you are injured.

Achilles tendinopathy is literally translated an inflammation in the Achilles tendon. In Achilles tendinopathy, the quality and structure of the tendon may be reduced, often due to overload.
The complaints and pain can develop in different places within the tendon. For example, the tendon may be affected in the middle. Whether the tendon is affected at the heel bone, at the attachment with the bone.
Achilles tendinopathy often occurs with a much repeated and stressful force on the tendon. This occurs, for example, with excessive walking, jumping, running or running.
The complaint can also suddenly arise because a great force is placed on the Achilles tendon. This can happen due to an unexpected acceleration or a powerful take-off.
The main thing is to identify the cause of the problem. If you know how the complaints come about, the problem can be treated. Make sure to temporarily reduce the load and activity on the Achilles tendon. Call ProBrace for physiological advice or visit a physiotherapist in your area. He will give exercises to strengthen the muscles.
Products have also been developed specifically for Achilles tendon problems. Think about:
In order to completely solve the problem, it is important that the muscles recover well. Muscle recovery can be accelerated by stretching the muscles during the day. As a result, the muscles will grow and recover in the correct length direction. Stretching the Achilles tendon therefore improves recovery of the Achilles tendon.
A night splint can be chosen for stretching the muscles. The night splint will be worn during the night, when the tendon has rest and time to recover.
Both night splints have been scientifically used for Achilles tendon complaints!
