Straining your achilles tendon can be very debilitating and will cause pain into the calf muscle and down into the heel. Swelling can occur as well at the site of the injury with increase tenderness to the muscle and tendon in the area.
Achilles tendon strains can be avoided with the proper mobility in the ankle and calf muscle areas. Calf stretches will keep the achilles tendon and calf muscle pliable and ready load and/or activity. Also, a proper activity warm up should include things like foam rolling to increase muscle temperature and blood flow to the area to supply the appropriate amount of blood and nutrients to sustain the activity.
