Do you have an unusual Clear Nails Plus Review amount of pain or discomfort in your calf or heel with any type of movement? Are you a runner or did you just start a new activity or job requiring a lot of time on your feet? If so, you may complain of a pulling pain when you walk or run and even while going UP stairs or a steep incline. The pain may also radiate up towards your knee and thighs. Some people may experience leg cramps with daily activities but also in the middle of the night.

These are the symptoms and activities consistent of someone who has a condition called Achilles tendonitis. The "itis" means inflammation. So this is an inflammation of the Achilles tendon, which is the strongest tendon in your body. A tendon is a strong substance of fibers connecting your muscles to the bone and crosses a joint to allow for range of motion. Those with flatfeet develop a condition called equinus or an inability to fully flex your toes towards your nose. This equinus in flatfeet is due to the malalignment of the foot and the Achilles compensates for this by contracting or tightening up.

There are two main types of Achilles tendonitis - insertional and non-insertional. The Achilles tendon connects the two calf muscles (Gastrocnemius and Soleus muscles) to the heel bone (calcaneus). You have insertional tendonitis if the pain is directly on the bone in the back of the heel but if the area of discomfort is higher up in the midportion of the tendon, then you have non-insertional Achilles tendonitis.
