An Achilles tendon injury often occurs due to overuse of the tendon. Often times, it is due to a lack of flexibility of the tendon, as well as overpronation. The good news is that there are Achilles tendon exercises and stretches that can help to condition the leg so that you do not suffer an Achilles tendon injury.
If you have already experienced an injury or strain of the Achilles tendon, you can also do Achilles tendon stretches and exercises to aid in recovery. It is important to note that when you do Achilles tendon exercises, you should use Tuli’s® Heel Cups. These inserts are biomechanically designed to support and aid in the relief of the Achilles tendon during physical activity.
