The Achilles tendon is the strongest of all the tendons in the body. But even it has trouble withstanding the constant strain of daily use, the pressure of supporting the rest of the body. Injuries typically occur as a result of overuse, usually after a period of relative inactivity. Even top athletes can experience Achilles tendon injuries; that's why it is important to introduce more intense activity gradually after an Achilles injury, often with the guidance of physical therapy.

Without treatment, relatively minor conditions like tendonitis can become much worse. It is important to seek treatment at the first sign of injury, even if the pain is tolerable.
