Achilles Tendinitis creates discomfort in your Achilles Tendon, the largest tendon in the human body. The Achilles Tendon connects the calf muscle to your heel and is key for any type of walking, running or jumping movements.
Achilles Tendinitis is typically the result of repetitive stress, or overuse, not a specific injury. If left untreated, it can become very painful and lead other injuries. When you first experience symptoms, reduce your physical activity, stay off your feet as much as possible, and rest. If the area is swollen, elevate your feet and apply an ice pack. If the pain increases and/or persists, contact your doctor.

Kinesiology tape is popular with athletes at every level, in nearly every sport. Top athletes are looking to get the most out of their bodies — every little bit helps. And Kinesiology tape is one fast and easy way to get an edge on the competition.
While kinesiology tape might seem like glorified athletic tape, the two tapes are very different. Athletic tape is used for support and to limit motion. Kinesiology tape facilitates motion, moves when you, and helps improve circulation.
