Caption

Achilles tendinitis. Close-up of the ankle of a 70-year-old female patient affected by achilles tendinitis, the inflammation of the Achilles tendon. Achilles tendonitis can be caused by overstretching, traumatic injury and obesity. If the inflammation is not treated and the tendon rested and allowed to heal, calcification may result. Calcification may require surgical treatment, although if the tendinitis is diagnosed early it can be treated by using ultrasound.
